Sighting

Saw two female Phainopeplas feeding on insects from the same bush in Birchim Canyon late morning. Both were medium/dark gray with no distinctive white patches seen under the wings during flight and not as black as males. Fairly quiet with less than 20 common species seen and/or heard near the west gate. One Western Tanager and one Wilsonís warbler.
