Email from Lu Giddings:
A red-breasted sapsucker was seen today at
Lytle Ranch on a St. George Bird Festival field trip lead by Larry Tripp.
The bird was spotted in the SE corner of the orchard, in a fruit tree on
the fringe of the orchard and the mesquite bordering the orchard. It was
seen in the same tree from about 8:30 a.m. until nearly noon. A few rather
blurry photos were taken and will be forwarded to Utah Birds. A Bell's
vireo was heard calling from the mesquite in the NE corner of the orchard.
And crissal thrashers were heard calling in several different locations.
