Pena Blanca Lake -- Outstanding Birding Spot

Christine and I headed down to Pena Blanca Lake early yesterday morning in search of the Green Kingfisher.

Pena Blanca Lake is about ten miles from the US/Mexico border near Nogales. It is a beautiful lake (even if man-made). And it was quite "birdie". At times  hard to decide what bird to photograph.

We didn't see the Green Kingfisher but did see and get nice photos of a Green Heron and a Belted Kingfisher plus the even rarer Yellow-green Vireo. Other good birds included:

Blue Grosbeak
Varied Bunting
Summer Tanager
Great Blue Heron
Green Heron
Wilson's Warbler
Yellow Warbler
Warbling Vireo
Bewicks Wren
Marsh Wren

I'll show off the Yellow-green Vireo today, with some of the others over the next couple of days:
