Debbie and I are birding S.E. Arizona to photograph migratory and non-migratory birds that we have never seen before. We’ve been entertained by birds, like this Great-tailed Grackle ever since we entered this country. A land with habitats ranging from desert and desert-oasis to high mountains where we were actually covered with snow on Mt. Lemon one day. The both of us wearing Baja shorts and sandals!
One of the RV resorts had a nice lake where we saw Yellow-headed Blackbirds.
There, we also saw Black-crowned Night Herons.
Always smiling, Debbie is shooting these –
common Coots. Coots? If they had been named Ivory-billed divers or something like that they would have a better status in the bird world. So cute!
At a little hot-springs oasis near Death Valley we saw our first Lucy’s Warbler.
I know, I know, some of these photos are a little fuzzy but most birds just won’t stop moving and they can be few and far apart. Sometimes I just have to pull the trigger and hope. Here’s Debbie again. You can tell how much fun we are having. I’m going to leave today’s blog with a few shots of water-birds from Crystal Springs, Az.
