A warbler of the pine forests of Southern North America right on down to the Nicaraguan northern mountains. Along Bear Creek Picnic area, there were several great species of song birds making their way through the pine forest. These birds included Painted Redstart, Hermit and Wilson's warblers, Yellow-eyed Junco, and several species of vireo. This world above the desert would shock most people to find the lush forests and mountain streams so close to one of the driest deserts in North America. Mt. Lemmon has so much to offer including a reprieve from the heat.
