|Red Yucca-a good choice for Tucson! Anna's Hummingbirds will love this plant while it is blooming!|
Magill made awesome shirts for our Coachline "Big Sit". Little Ground Squirrels kept us entertained while we counted the birds under the big tent.
We ended the day on a high note as 60 Lesser Nighthawks serenaded about us catching insects. It was quite the sight!

I think without current human intervention, these frogs would be extinct by now. I once heard a local naturalist tell another that it's only a matter of time before they disappear. I also heard another report from a different naturalist who thinks they are making great progress. What do I think? Well, it's great that I saw a frog in this canyon. Before the Miller Canyon fire, they were plentiful. After the fire, they all but disappeared. Finding one on Sunday was hopeful.
And finally, here are some Southern Arizona flowers that really make a statement. Below, the Golden Columbine is found at higher elevations around our Sky Islands.
While this Mountain Rose Mallow is currently blooming in our butterfly garden at El Presidio in Tucson. This is one tough little plant!
Have a great week and stay tuned for more next week!
