1007 bird species


I have now passed 1000 bird species in the world. The last few days have given:

998: Williamson’s Sapsucker Sphyrapicus thyroideus (Grand Canyon)

999: White-winged Dove Zenaida asiatica (Phoenix)

1000: Purple Martin Progne subis (Greasewood Park, Tucson)

1001: Gila Woodpecker Melanerpes uropygialis (Greasewood Park, Tucson)

1002: Gilded Flicker Colaptes chrysoides (Greasewood Park, Tucson)

1003: Lesser Nighthawk Chordeiles acutipennis (Greasewood Park, Tucson)

1004: Cactus Wren Campylorhynchos brunneicapilla (Greasewood Park, Tucson)

1005: Gambel’s Quail Callipepla gambeli (Greasewood Park, Tucson)

1006: Black-tailed Gnatcatcher Polioptila melanura (Greasewood Park, Tucson)

1007: Curve-billed Thrasher Toxostoma curvirostra (Greasewood Park, Tucson)


Tomorrow we’re off to Madera Canyon all day, then Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge the day after that, and then a quick morning at Mount Lemmon before we start heading North again. Preliminary species list for the trip is 158 species for me, and about 160 species in total.
