Buff Breasted Flycatcher at Rose Canyon Lake

Christine and I birded Mount Lemmon on Monday May 16th. We started at Rose Canyon Lake which was quite "birdie." One of the "prizes" here is the Buff Breasted Flycatcher. Although Sibley's says the BBF is mainly found in the Huachuca Mountains of Arizona, I have found Rose Canyon Lake on Mount Lemmon to be the most reliable place (at least over the last few years).

We were pleased not only to find this little guy (other than the even rarer Tufted Flycatcher, the Buff Breasted is the smallest flycatcher in North America).

And, not just happy to find, happy to find him posing in a variety of settings:
