  1. Nice. I saw my first of these recently in Gilbert, AZ, but it stayed under bushes the whole time so I couldn’t get a clear, low ISO shot.

    1. Thanks! They are quick difficult to see, normally, except in this part of the world (south west B.C.), for some strange reason. I remember that I rarely saw their eastern cousins when I birded in the Toronto area.
