Debbie and I have been weeding through hundreds, if not thousands, of photos from our South-East Arizona Great Bird migration experience. Here’s a family of American Coots. We found that many of the R.V. parks are doing a super job of taking care of habitats for all kinds of animals. This park we stayed at had a really nice pond with fish and many species of birds living there. http://www.terribleslakesidecasinorvpark.com/
That park was so nice we stayed an unplanned extra couple of days there. This Black-crowned Night Heron was enjoying the bountiful food source the little lake provided.
These Great-tailed Grackles
with their comical nature sang and sang night and day for our enjoyment. Never a dull moment with these guys around.
Then it was off to some really remote areas of of S.E. AZ. Me with my Vanguard Endeavor 8 x 42 binos and Debbie sporting her Leica Ultravid 10 x 42 HDs the birds didn’t have much of a chance to escape our vision. For the first time we saw Bridled Titmouse
And one of the plainest looking sparrows I’ve ever seen- the Botteri’s Sparrow.
Debbie found this Cassin’s Kingbird striking a pose for her. Beautiful bird!
Another flycatcher Debbie found was this Great crested Flycatcher. First time for us.
That Debbie, with her Cannon T2i and 100 x 400 ISO lens really has an eye for the birds. Check out this Painted Redstart munching on a bug getting it ready for the babies to eat.
Well, I’m ready to fly off now but not before mentioning how humbled and pleased we are to announce that BirdsWeSee.com has received the prestigious Perky-Pet “Eye In The Sky Award” for excellence in bird photography and displaying what it takes to venture to places unknown to us to photograph birds to share with our readers.
Thank You Perky Pet
