Ash throated Flycatcher (1 of 1) blogAsh Throated Flycatcher in Sabino Canyon — Image by kenne

This morning was my first opportunity in awhile to go on the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) Tuesday Nature Walk. The naturalists that conduct these walks in Sabino Canyon are very good, so I’m always learning something new each time I can make it out. The nice thing about being with them is I can photograph a bird, reptile, insect or plant and get the name immediately rather than calling or emailing someone later.

Jerry Bird, a fellow classmate from the 2011 SCVN class spotted a ash throated flycatcher — Bird is a very good birder. Most of the time is not easy to photograph the small birds in the desert, they are frequently behind the many limbs they keep jumping to and from. Jerry pointed out this ash throated Flycatcher in a distant mesquite tree, After several attempts, this one is not bad considering the conditions.
