Before I begin today, I have to apologize for the lack of blogging. We have been hiking nonstop and when we're not doing that, I'm grading final exams. It has been extremely crazy over here with the holidays in gear. Personally, I believe everyday in life is a holiday if we make it that way....so I never quite understood this time of year. I like the actual day when family and friends get together but everything else just weirds me out. What if we could just spread it all out over the year and be nice to each other all the time? OR What if we didn't make the holidays such a big production!? Of course I only write this because it gets in the way of birding;) Speaking of birding....
|Anna's Hummingbird ....you can't miss 'em:)|
|Vermilion Flycatcher....get up and head to one of our many parks. You won't miss this one!|
|Harris Hawks...depends where you look, but while I bird in Tucson, they are almost spotted on each outing.|
The Verdin. Research the sounds and listen for that hummingbird like sound....but not quite....and you'll find this little number hopping around you. Sometimes you don't even know it!
|Reliable and Common bird....the Red Tail Hawk|
