After several weeks of cool and windy weather it is warming up here on the Colorado River. Temperatures in the mid 70’s were a little too warm for both birds and birders yesterday afternoon. I had my smallest turnout of birders and birds, only identifying 14 species compared to the 20-24 species of the previous four trips. The favorite bird of the day was a female Vermilion Flycatcher which Bill & Trudy are watching in the lower branches of an acacia tree. With the warmer weather I will be changing the Bird Walks to a morning time of ten o’clock in place of the current one o’clock in the afternoon.
