Maginificent. Just like that Magnificent Hummingbird up there, that is how our Arizona birding vacation has been so far.
Lisa and I have been in Southeast Arizona for 4 days, the last 3 1/2 days, the last 2 at Cave Creek Canyon in the Chiricahua Mountains, and our heads are spinning with all we have seen - birds, amazing scenery, even ancient pictographs.
Bird-wise, we have racked up an incredible 91 species in the last 74 hours, including 41 life birds for Warren and 42 for Lisa. (Working on that harmony list). Elegant Trogon? Red-Faced Warbler? Zone-Tailed Jawk? 7 species of humminbirds? We've seen 'em.
More posts and pictures soon.
