Central Arizona - Red Mountain Park and the Superstitions (22 Feb 2013)

by AJ 22. February 2013 22:18

This was a short afternoon out with the first goal of finding the Bendire's Thrasher in a Mesa city park nearby.  Although the habitat was a little strange for this species, as I started walking around this urban fishing lake I heard it singing.  The bird was obviously used to people as it let me walk close and get some great shots.


From there it was on to Apache Junction to survey the incredible snow on the Superstitions.  I've seen a light dusting on them before but never anything to this extent and lasting so long.  While at Lost Dutchman State Park I managed to get the best photo I've taken to date of one of my favorite birds of this area - Phainopepla.
