We’d like to share a few more photos from Arizona.

 

In Baja Sur we have the California Quail.  During our Winnebago adventure in AZ. we were rewarded with shots of two types of quail new to us.  The Gambel’s Quail, below is a male and a female is on the cover page.

These quail really “strut” their stuff.  Gambel’s Quail can often be seen around the R.V. parks.

And the Scaled Quail, a lot less common in South East Arizona and we actually saw only one on our entire trip.  I can see why they are called “scaled”.

I mentioned on a previous post that some places near the Mexican border had signs to caution visitors in remote areas to be watchful.  Here’s one we came across.

Always a good idea to be aware of your surroundings while birding anywhere.  From bees to snakes to wild dogs and scoundrels, stay alert.

On one of our guided walks, old eagle-eyes, (me) was the first to spot a real rarity.  Waaay up near the top of a tree I could something new.  What’s that up there Laurens?  Glasses up he says ohhhh, that’s a Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher.  What a treat!

Some birds didn’t cooperate by letting us get close enough for great shots but this photo of a Summer Tanager is good enough for an I.D.

Then we came across one of my favorite birds, a Yellow Warbler.  Even if they are pretty common, these birds are always a joy to see.

Okay, maybe I’m goofing up a bit and may have shared this shot with you before but I love this photo taken by my lovely Debbie. A Yellow-eyed Junco.  Notice this bird has been banded.  We found it way up in the middle of nowhere!

So many birds and so little Time.  Happy Birding,  ChrisnDebbie

    As usual, OLY, those are most beautiful photos, taken by an experienced photogropher, a great one, to be sure.

    I love the Quail…both are so unique and of course I am all about color….so the Warbler & Tanager are my favorites.
    Happy Birding…
