Here are some of my favorite pics from this stay:
|had to be out hiking at dawn as the temps were highs in the 80's!|
|in the early light, the colors really pop on this male American Kestrel|
male and female
Saguaros make great perches
for a gila woodpecker...
and curved bill thatcher ...
|the best example of a cristated saguaro, yes there were 2 normal arms on the other side|
|a crested barrel!!|
|some desert color|
Lucky enough to
catch this kestrel
|in the mood!|
Tucson Mountain Park
|nice to get a view looking down on these giants!|
