In order to see birds, it is necessary to become part of the silence."

~Robert Lynd

Who could have known that a tiny virus could create so much havoc???  However, I am so thankful that we can still visit our feathered friends and enjoy the great outdoors.  Here in Arizona we are particularly blessed due to the diversity of habitats and great weather.  This too shall pass. . . I look forward to sharing with one and all in the near future.  In the meanwhile, stay safe and stay healthy!!  Hugs to all, Melody

    May the Great Birding God smile down upon you!! 

So Many Birds, So Little Time!!

August is almost here. . . I am jumping the gun a bit.  This is the time for Hummingbirds.  Lots of migrants go through Southern Arizona.  I am already seeing some migration at my feeders here in Tucson.  

We are birding as usual here. ..  practicing social distancing, but still able to get outdoors and play.  We made our first trip into the gulch this last week of March.  . . the Buff-collared nightjars are back for another year and the gulch was gorgeous and as fresh as ever.   .We are seeing them every time we visit.  What a blessing.   

Stay safe and healthy and most of all, stay birding.  Hugs to all, Melody

A bit of musing here, not meant to ruffle feathers, but perhaps a time to reflect.  As we enter into migration, we birders can get in a bit of a hurry. . . this is when we use the tapes, toot a lot and pish to get the little ones to show their beauty.  As a note of inquiry. . . I wonder if by using these methods when they are looking for a place to settle down and breed, if we are moving them off prime real-estate because they believe another virile male has already settled in.  Let's face it those tapes sound pretty good even to those of the breeding species.



I would like to address this issue of border safety.  We are always cautious, but I am far more concerned about going to the mall after dark than I am along the border.   There have been no changes to our operation and none foreseen.  So come on!!!  Let's go birding!!!
