Lucy's Warbler is a tiny elusive bird of the desert. In my vain attempts to find the "difficult Thrashers" I stumbled across one in the yard of Quailway Cottage just west of Portal...
|note the sharply pointed bill|
|not sharp but it shows the Rufous uppertail coverts|
When we eventually got back to the Motel after our epic 2 days in the Chiricahuas this cahp was waiting for us by the front door. It was a good 6 inches in length. Louise wasn't to impressed!!!
I'm thinking it's a Colorado River Toad?
