Last week we met up with Kathie of Sycamore Canyon blog again..to do some more birding..
This time Kathie took us to Cienega Creek Preserve.
Read Kathies Post of our Day…its so delightful..and she makes you feel like you are there with her..I know..because I was.
She makes an awesome German Pancake with apples..I am dreaming about it now.
After Kathies wonderful breakfast she takes us to the Preserve..
Do you see the face?
The creek runs right in front of the face..
As we follow the creek we see lushness
We spy a few Lesser Goldfinch..but..where are the other birds?
We decide to follow the creek in the opposite direction..hoping to find the source of the springs.
Onward we walk thru the wash…trees clinging to the water cut bank.
These trees are blooming…and the birds are finding food up high in them..
Flocks of Robins, Lesser Goldfinch, Yellowrump warblers, Gilded flickers, Gila Woodpeckers and more…most were hard to see as they flitted around the top of the tall tree.
Kathie took us to see this Great horned Owl nest…
See the hole in the bank off the side of the road?
Thanks Kathie and Gus for your warm hospitality!
Lets go birding again.
