Roadrunner on my block wall 5-15-10
I took this picture of a Roadrunner as it ran along my garden wall on May 15. The shot was taken through my kitchen window on a sunny Saturday afternoon. We’ve been having lots of sunshine here lately with temperatures ranging from highs in the 90’s down to today’s high in the 70’s. I woke up freezing this morning and jumped in my new hot tub first thing just to warm up! It’s suppose to be cool again tonight and tomorrow and then the 90’s return. We still haven’t hit 100 degrees yet this year, but I know it is coming!
I feel a bit like this Roadrunner lately. It seems like I am always on the go. By the time most of you will be reading this I will be on my way to Portal, AZ and Cave Creek Canyon where I will meet Donna Simonetti and Bosque Bill for 36 hours of high speed birding. If all goes well I’ll come home with new friendships, 8-10 lifers and tons of great pictures and, of course, more birding stories. I’ll keep you all posted via this blog or my Facebook page! Until then, have a great day watching birds, ‘cause Birds are Everywhere!
For those of you interested in statistics, my Life List for Cochise County, AZ is currently at 110 species. It was only 82 at the start of this year. My Year List for Cochise county is 77 species. I have only birded in Cochise County twice so far this year. I will update these statistics when I return! Portal and Cave Creek Canyon are both in Cochise County.
