Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Two individuals were flying about a small One-seed Juniper atop a rocky, open hilltop at 7,280 ft. elev. in a fairly strong breeze. The two individuals seemed to be involved in an intermittent chase. They would then land on the juniper for a short period of time and then engage in the chase again, and so on.
