Chiricahua hike with Steve and Lena

This is a hike from a week ago that we did with Steve and Lena. They drove from Tucson to Sierra Vista where we were staying. We had a great time with them. The Hike was in the Chiricahua National Monument. Great rock formations.

Webshot Photo Link

here is a link for my Webshot Photos
for some reason I couldnt add pictures or a photo slideshow to the blog tonight....bummer

Evening in the San Rafael Grasslands

Haven't blogged for a while, and its not because we haven't been doing anything....most days we go birding somewhere around the Patagonia area. Either a drive to look at birds or a walk to see them.
We are still traveling with Dick and Judi May, and recently Patti and Geno Masuda joined us here. It was Patti and Geno who originally introduced us to this area.

It is a wonderful area, lots of birding here, and never enough time to see it all. We have discovered a few new areas on this trip...but i am sure there are plenty others waiting to be discovered....oh time.

We leave here on Tuesday after our mail arrives.

I have taken lots of other video...but for whatever reason....I have not added it to the blog....maybe sometime later or maybe never....

I do have this one video that was taken last night in the San Rafael Grasslands.....we went for the sunset with Geno and Patti....

and below that are the pictures we have taken from some of our adventures in the area.....

Lunch in Nogales Mexico

Howdy all,

Haven't taken too much video lately.....but we have been having fun birding and touring the area with our friends Dick and Judy and another friend who is visiting from Oregon.
Above are a few birds we have spotted in the area. The first bird the Rose throated Becard is a rarity not expected until later in the season. I was lucky enough to spot the bird near an rv at the start of one of our guided birding hikes.... I was very surprised to see it and everyone else was too.. everyone was very excited and I got a round of applause for finding it.
Later in the day I found a rare Western Wood Owl....I was convinced I was seeing a real owl...and had others convinced for a while too... I should go back and take a picture of really did look real.

Below is a video of a short trip into Nogales, Mexico for lunch. Tons of pharmacies there for getting cheap prescriptions...allot of Americans go there to get cheaper prices....also many Dental offices.
I am tired of Mexican food....actually I never really loved Mexican food...but i have had enough.
I still love Tamales and fish tacos..but i could do without the rest.
