sialia (bird) mexicana (of Mexico)
Thursday, April 5, 1984 — 10:30 am
Coronado National Forest, Arizona — Mt. Lemmon
We were on top of the mountain, near Summerhaven, looking at two Pygmy Nuthatches climbing about on a roadside stump. I spotted four (two pairs) Western Bluebirds perched in pines along the road by a small clearning. Occasionally they switched perches. One female flew out toward us, stopped and hovered for a few seconds, then returned to her perch. Most of the time, they just sat and looked around.
