Luca Gugelmann (12 Sep 2018) - [Goulding's Lodge] - Peregrine Falcon

Ryan Carle (10 Sep 2018) - [Bullet Canyon] - Brown-crested Flycatcher. Had a great look at this bird but unfortunately could not photo-document it; This bird was in a riparian thicket in bullet canyon. It was clear on first impression and subsequent analysis that it was not an ash-throated flycatcher. The bill was noticeably longer and stouter than an ATFL and the bird appeared overall larger than an ATFL. The belly was pale yellow, it had a gray throat, and the upperside of the tail was very reddish. Belly appeared paler yellow than a great-crested flycatcher's would. The main differentiation between this bird and an ATFL was the larger size and much larger bill--all three observers are quite familiar with ATFL and none of us thought this bird was an ATFL.

Donald Jones (15 Mar 2018) - [Dark Canyon to Lost Canyon] - Lucy's Warbler. I was very surprised to hear a warbler singing on the slope above our campsite this morning, having assumed that it was too early even this far south. Started out high above the canyon bottom in dry scrub/juniper habitat but eventually worked its way down to the streamside cottonwoods where I had excellent looks. Song reminded me of YEWA, but more musical and not as zingy. Physical appearance as described in field notes: "Gray above, pale off-white below w/very faint yellow wash on breast; pointy black bill; faint face stripes reminiscent of WAVI; fairly obvious rusty patch on crown." Initially thought it was a VIWA, not being very familiar with LUWA, but the lack of a sharp white eye-ring coupled with the overall grayer coloration and the pale underparts almost entirely lacking yellow were wrong for that species. I did not notice the orange patch on the flanks depicted in field guides.
