WOW!!! Thank you, George Edwards, for sending these fantastic photos of our Acorn Woodpeckers! George must have a very high tech camera to capture shots like this! Awesome!
When I first posted a couple bird pictures on this blog, I didn't realize that so many people would enjoy them as much as I do. It's exciting to walk through the resort and have people stop me to talk about a recent story or contribute photos like this. Thank you one and all for your contributions and encouragement to keep writing!
George also captured some great shots of this curve-billed thrasher. This bird may be drab in color but has a very distinctive audio song. If you hear him, any bird watcher would immediately start looking around to try and spot him. He loves to "thrash" around near the ground to catch insects and usually nests in cholla cactus (which he won't find in Palm Creek!).
Thanks again, George, for the great photos!
