Birds in Southeast Arizona — 9 Comments

  1. Gorgeous collection of bird images. We visited Patagonia SP Feb 2015 and saw the handsome Elegant Trogan. I managed a couple of snap shots of him but nothing close to your amazing captures.

  2. I love this post, love your fabulous bird pictures. We’ve gone to Patagonia State Park and to Madera Canyon many times and we’ve yet to see the Trogan….not for lack of trying! We camped at Whitewater Draw once with Nina and Paul…we spend a lot of time dissecting Owl pellets from the resident Great Horned Owl. Fun for geeks!

  3. Oh my, oh my, oh my. If you painted that Elegant Trogan people would think you made him up! And the power in the wings of the red tailed hawk taking off…and such lovely little birds, all fluff and color. So wonderful, all of them! I’m in Alabama and have seen the blue heron, and a brown thrasher and a pair of bluebirds. I have pictures of all of those, but no really GREAT pictures of any of them! But I’ve enjoyed being outside in 50 degree weather with no snow, so it’s all good.

  4. Plenty of colour in the plumage. Makes a change for us here in the UK. True we do have some birds that sport a bright coat of feathers but for the most part it is a wide varietybofvgreys thru browns in a multitude of shades.

  5. Wow! Wow! Wow! I loved seeing all these amazing birds. You had me at hello with the Bluebird but then The Elegant Trogan showed up. Wow! I’ve never seen one before so thank you so much for sharing!
    Your captures are stunning… thank you!

  6. Birds are my favorite, so I love these! It is fun to see a combination of birds that I’ve also seen here at home, but also some that are totally new to me! I don’t have as much time for it as I used to, but I’ve always considered myself a birder. My sister and I used to go to a lot of different places to find different ones. She and I need to try to start doing that again!
