Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

"h" is for...ABC Wednesday 090909


heron. Our valley is full of cattle herons. So, if you see one of these white birds near the golf course or on it, you'll know what it is! I see them in Thermal and the lower valley, especially out in fields, but I also see them in Palm Desert. They especially like the ponds and small lakes at various country clubs and resorts like Desert Springs. ABC Wednesday for September 9, 2009.

I never heard the heron called a cattle heron. Makes sense though. I guess I don't think of this bird and desert together.
Good post for the letter H.
