Lazuli Gatherings? Where?
The past couple of years I've been able to find Lazuli Buntings pretty easily around Santee etc. This year I have yet to find one. I've tried Mission Trails multiple times, Marston Canyon yesterday in the NW edge by those orange colored pine trees close to 163. I was even in SE AZ for 4 days, saw Flame-Colored Tanager and Elegant Trogon for the first time, and did not see a single Lazuli.
Is there somewhere that's reliable this year for small flocks of Lazuli Buntings, sort of like the Fortuna Staging area in Santee has been in past years? I still have yet to see a single Lazuli in 2018!
