There are two locations where immature RED-SHOULDERED HAWKS are being seen. One bird was seen at the east end of Schmutz Hill, along the road east of the Springs Estates Pond, in Washington Fields on the morning of 2/19. Later that day, the immature bird that has been intermittently seen 4 1/2 miles west of Enterprise was relocated. This bird was along Shoal Creek, where a white trailer and a red shack are located. According to the observers, this is exactly where the bird was originally seen on 1/16 (RF, JK).
The two GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROWS are still being seen at the Red Cliffs Recreation Area, near Leeds. Observers have reported seeing the birds on Sunday, 2/13 (J&KB), and on Friday, 2/18 (RF, JK).
Other birds seen on Saturday, 2/19, include a ROSS' GOOSE at the middle pond of the Sunbrook Golf Course in Green Valley, 50+ HOODED MERGANSERS at Ivins Reservoir, a GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE at Southgate Golf Course, and three TREE SWALLOWS flying over the Springs Estates Pond in Washington Fields (RF, JK).
At Tonaquint Park, a female BLUE GROSBEAK and a singing COMMON YELLOWTHROAT were observed on Monday, 2/14 (J&KB). This same COMMON YELLOWTHROAT was relocated on Saturday, 2/19 (RF, JK, MT).
