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.

Yellow headed blackbird~Wild Bird Wednesday~020514

A couple of years ago I headed down to the Coachella Valley Bird Center, in Indio.  I wanted some information about some of the birds I saw in my yard.  This fellow showed up while I was taking a walk with the lady in charge.  Like I said, it's been a couple of years and I need to return...maybe this next weekend?  He was quite interested in us.  I believe she said he was a yellow-headed blackbird.  Can anybody confirm this?  Whatever he is, he sure was colorful!  Wild Bird Wednesday for February 5, 2014.   To see more interesting birds, please go to this link:    http://paying-ready-attention-gallery.blogspot.com/

Ahhh!! I've been trying to find one of those for years. Every time one shows up in our area..."You just missed it" is what I hear.
Nice shot...one day...
