"Harris Wash is a tributary of the Escalante River and offers an interesting birding experience in a remote, cottonwood-lined sandstone canyon. Birding can be good even in the parking area, which sits on the edge of the wash in a thicket of tamarisk, Russian olive, and cottonwoods, but the warblers and towhees that frequent this area mostly remain well hidden in the brush.
Specialty birds: Gray and Willow Flycatchers; Green-tailed and Spotted Towhees. Other key birds: Common Nighthawk; Common Poorwill; Blackchinned Hummingbird; Hairy Woodpecker; Ash-throated Flycatcher; Plumbeous Vireo; Common Raven; Violet-green Swallow; Rock, Canyon, and Bewick’s Wrens; Cedar Waxwing; Orange-crowned, Virginia’s, and Yellow Warblers; Yellow-breasted Chat; Black-headed Grosbeak; Bullock’s Oriole; Lesser Goldfinch. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, and helpful general information."
