Countdown to 600

Crescent-chested Warbler - YES! Only the 10th record in the United States, I located the bird this morning at the Pinery Campground in the Chiricahua Mountains near Portal, in southeastern Arizona. Fortunately, about 15 people who were all there looking for the bird were able to get good looks. This bird was originally found a few days ago.

ABA #597, three to go.

People who put their photos on the Internet can get very touchy about using their photo for a blog(even with a full credit), so if you’re interested in seeing what the bird looks like, here is a link to some great shots taken of the bird we saw:
