Greetings from Tucson, AZ
For about the past week I have been conducting bird surveys in Saguaro National Park and Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. I haven't been taking a camera out with me but I think that will change . . . there are just so many photo ops! Luckily, my ipod has a camera, and while the quality isn't good at least it is something.
Here are a few pics to show one of the areas that I surveyed in:
|Western Diamondback Rattlesnake-I hiked in about a|
mile on a trail then had to cut off to get to my transect.
I picked the right spot, this rattlesnake was about 10 feet
off the trail.
|A beautiful canyon that was next to my transect. Some nice migrants such|
as Pacific-slope and Hammond's Flycatcher were in this canyon.
|The same canyon as above-Canyon and Rock|
Wrens were present, as well as Black-chinned and
