Birds of Camp Chiricahua, Part 2
The Theodore "Ted" A. Parker III Memorial Scholarship, sponsored by Victor Emanuel Nature Tours (VENT), provides one full scholarship a year for an OYBC member to attend Camp Chiricahua, VENT’s flagship summertime youth birding camp. VENT youth camps present a rare opportunity for young naturalists to be in the field with their peers and with expert leaders. In honor of this prestigious scholarship and to share a few of the birds endemic to this special region, Oscar Wilhelmy (the 2017 Theodore "Ted" A. Parker III Memorial Scholarship recipient) created a 2 part Photo ID Quiz for March and April.

Bird #4: This distinct species is a rare vagrant to the U.S., with only a handful of records. Camp Chiricahua usually gets to see a few mega-rarities from Mexico and Central America. We can tell that this bird is a flycatcher from its posture and shape. Also look at the color and head shape to identify this bird. *

Bird #5: Most owls are very distinct and easy to identify, but this one can be tricky. This is obviously a screech owl, but which species? There are two types of screech owls in Arizona, the western, and the whiskered. Notice how the vertical streaks are prominent but the horizontal streaks are faint on this bird. The pale tip of the bill may also be a useful feature to keep in mind. *

Bird #6: No less than 10 species of hummingbird can be regularly found in Arizona, but this species vibrant crown sets it apart from the others. It is one of Arizona's larger hummers, but it isn't as big as the Blue-throated or Rivoli's Hummingbird. *
