To me the Rufous-crowned Sparrow is a pretty cool-looking bird so I was really excited to get some good photo opportunities with them during our Arizona trip this year. This one was in Madera Canyon and was so close I had trouble fitting the bird in the frame! How often does that happen???

Acorn Woodpecker has to be one of the most common bird species at Madera Canyon and we certainly enjoyed watching them during our visit earlier this month. They are so neat looking and they definitely put on a show. I find the Latin name of this species to be interesting; as I understand it means ant eating, making this the ant-eating woodpecker. They obviously are famous for their acorn eating but what’s up with the ant eating name? As it turns out these woodpeckers actually prefer to eat ants to acorns but since ants might not be available all the time the acorns are the backup food source.

We encountered several of these Pygmy Nuthatches during our visit to Arizona earlier this month. It was fun watching them as they moved down the branches. They offer a nice challenge as small and fast as they are making them pretty much irresistible.

Photographing the morning fly-out of Sandhill Cranes at Bosque del Apache NWR last month was a lot of fun. I felt very fortunate to get such a beautiful morning to go along with the awesome background. It turns out that the most challenging part is choosing what photos to share.

I was pretty excited to come across this Abert’s Towhee in Tucson earlier this month. They are fairly common in the area but usually give me a pretty good challenge when it comes to getting a good photo. I couldn’t believe our luck when this one came out on such an exposed perch. They are normally buried in the brush and are especially skilled at frustrating me 😊
