Arizona Sampler

Participated in Wings Over Willcox birding festival. The all day trip for Southwest Winter Specialties was very productive, traveling the length of sulphur Springs Valley, through farmland, ranchland, grassland, some mountains, and wetlands. In vicinity of Whitewater Draw, here are a few:

Ladder-backed Woodpecker ...


American Pipit (although we tried to make it into Sprague's, but then someone read Sibley who said - does not bob tail, and this guy was bobbing its tail) ...


Vermilion Flycatcher ...

Brewer's Sparrow (talk about a non-descript, little brown bird, this is it!) ...

Pied-billed Grebe and Eared Grebe (froze my tush at Niles Beach near Gloucester, MA, looking for this bird a few days before leaving on this trip) ...

More soon. Good Birding!!

It is a nice little festival - good thing about a bird festival is that they know where to go
