Guide me. Let me ride the thermals until it's just you and me.
Let me be truly free. Free from all of this. Guide me. Take me. Carry me away.
I am exhausted. I do not want to be caged anymore. Open the door. Let me go. Let it all be done. Flight feathers grown back. Let me be free now.

Written after an incredibly personal moment near Wilcox, AZ.
Las Aventuras has several surprises in store over the next several weeks. Will I reach 600 life birds? Does any of it really matter? The journey is all that matters now. After all, the birds seen here today on this blog have all been seen before many times. And yet, they are still as magical as they were when I first met them.

I stood under a thousand cranes flying only feet from my head. And it was the most powerful singular moment of this year. I watched two Golden Eagles speed like bullets through the air after a flock of cranes. The cranes switched directions and whirred right above me. And in this action, my eyes were opened. Las Aventuras is going deeper into the world of birds over the course of this year. This Gray Fox will find his way into many new and old locations. You'll just have to wait and see;) Until next time friends.
