Birding in Arizona - Day 6, Flagstaff Arboretum

The Arboretum was a disappointment it's fair to say.  It's primarily about (a) entertaining children and (b) forest management.  The location is splendid, though:

But the trails and indeed birding are very limited.  This is a shame as it's in a great place to pick-up lots of local specialists but it's just so limited.  They could do so much more there.

Anyway I did get to see Yellow-rumped Warbler:

Steller's Jay:

Northern Flicker:

Mountain Bluebird:

House Wren:

Common Grackle:

Broad-tailed Hummingbird:

And Chipping Sparrow:

Time then to head to Quizno's for a toasted veggie sub each before heading back to the hotel.  We had some thinking to do as the plan for Friday was to drive to Tuscon via Phoenix, a six hour drive and to take in some birding on the way, but of course, things had changed....
