Cerulean Warbler

From a couple days ago - Mourning Dove carrying nesting material: And a Cedar Waxwing:

I'll start with this one

I saw some Rosy-faced Lovebirds for the first time this weekend!  They're native to Africa and were brought to the U.S. as pets, but now several thousand live and breed in the wild in Phoenix.  Apparently, the population has been growing for the past 25 years, and Phoenix is one of the only places in the U.S. where wild populations live.  So despite the >100 degree temperatures, I got to see these goofy parrots hanging out in a palm tree, flying around, and squeaking loudly.

Where'd you see them in Phoenix?

Hmm, what is the general practice around here for sharing birding spots?  I'm sure that you're a responsible birder, but I also don't want to stress the birds by bringing too much attention to them.  Opinions?

I was asking because I had already seen lovebirds in June in Phoenix. Was wondering if it was the same spot.
