Birding Southeast Arizona-Part 2

Here is the list for today.  I saw many of the same birds as yesterday; but did add a few lifers.  We spent time in the grasslands since the rain had stopped before heading down to the Chiracuahuas to look for the Mexican Chickadee, Yellow-eyed Junco and the Olive Wabler.  I only saw the Junco.  What a terrific bird!
