Nice to see the Spotted Towhee enjoying a bath. Towhees are one of my favorite birds.

As you can see from the header photo above, spring was making its grand entrance. Lush green grasses and dazzling wildflowers were gracing the area with their presence.

 

Happy Birding!

Everybody loves the Roadrunner, right?

Beep, Beep!

I have never seen a pair of Roadrunners. At some point, one would think, we would see a pair. Always searching for insects, lizards and snakes, and seemingly always running. I was lucky to see a few of them running around this lovely state park. Occasionally, a brief pause. And, I mean brief!

One evening, Howard and I were walking in the park and spotted this Roadrunner sitting in a tree. I have seen them (briefly) sitting on a fence post, but never in a tree. I wonder if he thought he was hiding from us.

Happy Birding!
