|A Sonoran Bumblebee stops for a look|
Our friend Bonnie from Wales came to visit. And it was a blast getting to hang out with Sherry too! We took a nice hike in Madera Canyon to find that elusive Elegant Trogon.
After our hike, we sat at the Santa Rita Lodge feeders and watched a Black-throated Gray Warbler take a sip from the fountain.
With the extreme temps gone now, it's SO nice to sit under a rock and absorb the natural world around us.

This year has been all about reflection. About friends. About sharing the experience with others. I remember those days when I did all of my birding alone, but now, I can't imagine my world without these friends.

I welcome the wintering birds. I welcome those friendships both new and old. And I welcome back these wonderful temperatures. Winter has come. Next week we celebrate autumn in the Pacific Northwest. I hope you join me for our adventures with friend and bird guide Khanh Tran. Until next time friends.....
