|Mexican Spotted Owl|
Over the past week, I've done some really sporadic things around Southern Arizona. I went to find a Spotted Owl in town.
Then it was off to help out at the Wings Over Willcox festival. I hung out at a booth with the Mexican ranch crew(the ones that track the Jaguars). We had a lot of wonderful people stop by including a certain bear:)

So there are some birds I like more than others. I think that it's this way for many people. The only bird I really wanted to see on our day out was the White-tailed Kite. The sun was setting while we watched this beautiful kite for a half hour. I think it has to be one of the most elegant and graceful birds out there. The pic below was my favorite. There are three layers to this photo. The setting sun. The gold colors of the grasses. And the silhouette of the kite landing. Perfection.

Anyhow, I've been a dabbling duck. I go there. Stay here. It doesn't matter.
