The first place l ever saw evidence of ant lions was under a juniper north of Glass Buttes. I think they're quite common in much of Oregon's juniper zone. I'm struck by the late date of this vireo's presence four seasons in a row with circumstantial  evidence of breeding. Could the Dobson's fly's annual cycle at Page Springs be involved?Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone
