Day 1 of this short trip started out in Portal in the morning, where I photographed feeder birds at a feeding station just northeast of Portal. I continued up the Cave Creek Canyon (South Fork) and photographed other birds including Townsend's Warbler and several Hummingbird species. In the afternoon, I drove to Hereford where I would stay the rest of the trip at Battiste Birds, Bed & Breakfast. During the late afternoon, I photographed a Western Screech Owl at San Pedro House. First night attempt at Elf Owl at Battiste was largely unsuccessful.
