Varied Buntings-another lifer today in Patagonia area


Another neat find today and another lifer species--Varied Bunting. This is the distinctive male but first saw the female (see next post). After finding the Thick-billed Kingbirds along the north end of Blue Haven Road in the Patagonia, AZ area I stopped again at the famous Patagonia Rest area to see if I might find more there. Though I didn't find any more of them, I did find this male and the female Varied Bunting. Though reported in other areas of SE Arizona I have not seen any reports of them at this location so another lifer species I found myself and in an area not previously reported. SeEtta
