These beautiful and majestic Salt River Wild Horses need your help to stay in their present home along the Salt River area in the Tonto National Forest.  Please sign the petition link to keep these wild horses protected from being rounded up.  Sign the petition HERE.

New Beginnings

Two juvenile Pied-billed Grebes look after each other on one of the ponds at Papago Park in Phoenix, Arizona. They are almost on their own now and their coloring will change by the time they are adults.  But, even at this size, they still try to hitch a ride on their mother's back.

This week in the Arizona Highways Magazine blog, my photo of Lockett Meadow was published in this week's Friday Fotos.

This was the height of the fall season up in Flagstaff.  I accompanied my photographer friend, Vince, who offered to do the driving with his four-wheel drive vehicle.  It was quite an experience traveling the backroads to get up there and an experience that I will never forget.

Bird Photography

“Sometimes I think that the point of birdwatching is not the actual seeing of the birds, but the cultivation of patience. Of course, each time we set out, there's a certain amount of expectation we'll see something, maybe even a species we've never seen before, and that it will fill us with light. But even if we don't see anything remarkable - and sometimes that happens - we come home filled with light anyway.”  ― Lynn Thomson, Birding with Yeats: A Memoir

Most of these birds were from Gilbert Water Ranch in Gilbert, Arizona.  The Barn Owl was from the Raptor Free Flight Demonstration at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, Arizona.  The set of three images of Sandhill Cranes were from Whitewater Draw south of Tucson, Arizona.
