I loved the Cottonwood campground. There was hardly anyone there, and we were able to find a campsite where you can see the Sunset, and stars from our windows at night. It was sunny and warmer, and there were quite few birds chirping all over the campground.
We birded at the campground, and did the three-mile loop trail to Mastodon Peak. Beautiful!!
Le Conte’s Thrasher Black-throated Sparrow
Out of focus, but is this Female, Ladder-backed Woodpecker? All about birds says, “A small black-and-white woodpecker of the southwestern United States and Mexico that forages and nests in cactus.”
