Yesterday in Rio Grande Gorge, south of Lobatos Bridge, I saw a Black Phoebe (Conejos County). There are less than a dozen reports in my database, and we get this species every few years. Ironically, the first SLV record that I am aware of was one found by Hugh and Urling Kingery in 1996 in the same area. I would suspect they nest somewhere in there. Would be a good summer trip and I would wear my snake gaiters as this is a good area to find a snake too!
