Finally managed a decent photo of a Greater Roadrunner…even if it was so close I could not quite fit the entire bird into one frame!

Another species that almost never makes it north to the states, the Social Flycatcher!

Birding stinks…when you visit the Álamos dump in search of first state record Common Grackle (lowest left bird), along with the abundant Bronzed Cowbird

Sinaloan Crows were also quite numerous at the dump!
