AZ trip (Feb 7-12th)

As I inch toward USA 700 I decided to do an AZ trip which seemed to offer the potential for a nice count of new birds, and some bird that I rarely see from year to year.  In real life, however, the birds didn't entirely play ball and I came away with three new ones (Le Conte's Thrasher, Western Screech-Owl, Rosy-faced Lovebird) and missed more interesting ones (Ruddy Ground-Dove, Black-capped Gnatcatcher, Nutting's Flycatcher) which for the most part chose the previous weekend to become elusive.

Trip report here.  Photos to be added.
