Habitat and Birds

This area has the best stand of juniper trees so could harbor Gray Flycatchers and Ash-throated Flycatchers. Mountain Bluebirds and Chipping Sparrow are also possible. Vesper Sparrow has been seen and Lazuli Buntings, Say’s Phoebe, and Horned Larks dodge the occasional Loggerhead Shrike.  Rarities include Grasshopper Sparrow and Varied Thrush.
