Slate-throated Redstart

June 10

Slate-throated Redstart

After seeing the Pine Flyatcher in the Santa Rita Mountains, we zipped on over to Pinery Canyon in the Chiricahuas for the Slate-throated Redstart that has been nesting there for the past month. We drove right up to it being observed by friends Mark and Lori Conrad. However, it quickly worked its way up the canyon and out of view. While we were waiting for the bird to come back down the canyon it started thunderstorming pretty bad. I ended up getting soaking wet…but was well worth the discomfort as the Redstart popped back out of it’s nest when the rain started to subside and I was able to get excellent shots!
