Actually, he caught up with me.
Sunday I saw a post on Facebook about Chris (from Las Aventuras) and Michael birding at the lakes in Prescott. I quickly commented that they were only about 30 miles north of where I live. They were spending the night there so we tentatively planned to meet Monday after a bit more birding. Lucky Chris also discovered another as yet unmet friend and birder lived a mile away from the lakes. So they birded in the morning and got to see the elusive Tundra Swans.
Then in the afternoon they made it to Yarnell and after hugging like the old blogger friends we are, although we’d never met in real time, I took them for a little walk into the Weaver Mountains.
Chris attempted to bird while I babbled away as usual. And I’m sure he got more photos, and better, than I did. But we had a great time.
We also saw these two mule deer plus four more
In way too short a time they had to take off for the rest of their journey home to Tucson. Next it’s my turn to get south where I’m sure Chris can take me birding. And I’ll try to shut up.
