Hi Birdlady-No cottonwood trees that I could see! This photo was actually taken in an oak woodland near a riparian woodland in Southern California- mostly Quercus agrifolia and Platanus racemosa!
Love this bird. Here they nest primarily in Black Cottonwood trees. They come to our hummingbird feeders during breeding season. Were there any cottonwood trees in the area near this spotting?
