ELF OWLS, which have been heard and seen in a large cottonwood tree at Lytle Ranch, continue to be heard, with the most recent reports from Saturday, 07/31 (LC,LL,LWy). The owls have been in the very large, lone cottonwood about 1/4 mile north of the caretaker's house, just south of the pond, at the junction of the hillside trail and the main trail up the wash. This is the first record of Elf Owl in Utah.
Two NASHVILLE WARBLERS were seen in the Pine Valley Mountains on Sunday, 07/25 (MS,DW). The birds were about 1/2 mile up the Brown's Point Trail.
