Abstract:We document nesting of Dusky Flycatcher (Empidonax oberholseri), Hermit Thrush (Catharus guttatus), Green-tailed Towhee (Pipilo chlorurus), and Fox Sparrow (Passerella iliaca) in the Sierra San Pedro Mártir of northern Baja California. These species are relatively widespread in the mountains of southern California. Additional species recently observed in the Sierra San Pedro Mártir in summer remain as unconfirmed breeders in Baja California [Northern Saw-whet Owl (Aegolius acadicus) and Townsend's Solitaire (Myadestes townsendi)] or all of Mexico [Hermit Warbler (Dendroica occidentalis)].
