My daughter and I had a early morning hike down the Bright Angel Trail. We went down about 1.5 miles before turning around. Found many life birds on this hike!
Drove to the lodge on the rim of the Grand Canyon and caught a few photos of local animals before it got dark.
Quick stop for a look from the tower – not so many birds here!
First day at the Grand Canyon! Last time I was here was 1989. Very excited.
The family took a ride up Verde Canyon on the railroad. Beautiful views and first time experiencing the Phainopepla.
Family outing at this nice state park resulted in 7 more life birds!
First morning in AZ I went on a hike around Midgley Bridge near Sedona, AZ. Beautiful morning and found a few life birds near the creek.
The last few years I have gone to the Santee Birding Festival in the Spring. It is a great event and this year in addition to the trips offered by the Festival I also did some personal trips to further explore the Charleston area.
