Not your daily birds

The day Mardi Gras ended (Wednesday 2/18/2015), we got this nice look at a Louisiana Waterthrush at Sabino Dam. They are rare visitors to our area, usually staying east of the Mississippi. Waterthrushes are warblers, but they do something unusual: they continuously bob their tails up and down. Sabino has hosted a wayward Louisiana Waterthrush at the dam during winter for two years in a row.

Ned, Lyn, and I saw this flock of Neotropic Cormorants flying in loose formation.

And Ned caught this rather bewildered-looking male Black-tailed Gnatcatcher on the same day. Maybe he's dreaming about flying with the Neotropic Cormorants.
