As reported by others recently, I sighted a red-eyed vireo along the Dry Creek Trail in the Boise foothills about 0.2 miles downstream of the confluence of Shingle and Dry Creeks.  The bird was in the riparian area singing long and loudly.  I saw it on the way up and the way down the trail.  Last sighting was at 11:16am today.

Female Rufous Hummingbird

Just had an adult female Rufous Hummingbird come into the feeder. Since I've never seen any evidence of Rufous breeding at our river location it appears, as was pointed out by others when I reported the adult male recently, Rufous must be on their southward migration already. It's early to see them at our home spot in late June.

And there were juncos at Rammage meadows in northern Gem County as well today! but they were chip/calling, not singing.  

Lots of serendipitous crossovers today!

=)   

thx Liz

all morning around the Silver City area our thermometer appeared to be stuck on 59F, a perfect temperature vs. what's eventually coming to Treasure Valley, maybe, who knows ??

Caught mine.   Listened to yellow rumped warblers all day in northern Gem County so this was a welcome break.

Bill, thx always for hummer news, love it !!....  =)

back to Grace's..... 
we note that Dondi Black had recorded a different sounding junco at Silver City earlier the SAME Morning we were there....   https://ebird.org/checklist/S70788682

interestingly, our junco sounded nothing like this junco  !!!  
I had three different recordings of Grace's on my iPod and the one that matched most precisely is from my old CD set for the Rocky Mtns (Righter and Keller)

so what's up with Silver City junco's ???

Filled feeder #53 today. Rufous showed this afternoon. I guess every one else is a breeder.

Evening Grospigs are still showing so I guess breeding. Ravens brood, 5+, chasing parents.

Bubbly house wrens everywhere.

Brian beat me so I’ll likely not post Rufous.

If you've never heard one singing, have a listen on xeno.....     https://www.xeno-canto.org/

And for the record, still no accepted reports of Grace's in Idaho, which in my experience is a " Ponderosa Pine species " in W Colorado

I took notice. GREA at Cave Creek Canyon in AZ in June 1976. Great two weeks of birding. It would be awesome to find in Idaho.

Re: Male Rufous

lcarrigan_55
 

Thanks Carl & Bill. I thought that might be the case but interestingly, our most numerous Rufous at our Snake River location & elevation west of Blackfoot has always been from Aug on for a few wks. I've always watched for the typical migration dates & never seem to see any, at home.

The only time we had the typical migration dates was 1988, yr of Yellowstone fires. Perhaps our location? Elevation? Interesting, nonetheless.
