a photoblog of God's handiwork.

Arizona Birding

If you’ve been following this blog, you already know that we encountered some wintry conditions on our trip through the southwest.  However, we did have some nice weather in the Phoenix area for a couple days before heading into the weather.  I spent a few hours at the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch in Gilbert, and the following day Alesia joined me for a day at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.  As was the case last year, both locations were teeming with wildlife, particularly of the avian variety.  I had a couple birds on my wishlist, wanting to get better images than I made the previous year; Northern Cardinals and Phainopepla were at the top of my list.

I hope you enjoy the awesome beauty of these wonderful works of the Lord’s creative power.  You can see some of last years pictures in The Rejoicing Desert gallery or at The Desert Shall Rejoice and Blossom, from May 2011.
