Mount Lemmon after the Fire

Mount Lemmon has been closed for the past couple of weeks to fight the Burro Fire which has burned nearly 28,000 acres. It reopened on Friday to the general public so Christine and I headed up to hike Incinerator Ridge and see what birds were still hanging around.

While not particularly birdie, we did come across some birds: red faced warblers, hermit thrush, mountain chickadee, bridled titmouse, white breasted nuthatch, brown creeper, and a couple of ravens. Oh yes, and of course, one of the most common of birds on Mount Lemmon, the yellow eyed junco.

Here are a couple of Red Faced Warbler photos I took:
