green jay, tho; those guys are just as brave as their blue cousins. I see them frequently in the Chisos.
Quote from: "Roy"green jay, tho; those guys are just as brave as their blue cousins. I see them frequently in the Chisos.Don't know if I'd know a green jay from a blue jay. It's like - what kind of tree is that - I don't know - It's a tree. Must be a pine tree. Now, the problem might be is that I don't frequent the Chisos very often, didn't get there once on this last trip. Usually, too many people, and I prefer the desert floor most of the time for my explorations. Plus, now that we have rediscovered the hot springs, gotta have camp near the hot springs to end the day properly.
Very colorful critter. There are some excellent birding places in the desert. You jsut need water. Dog Canyon during spring nesting season is a great place to see canyon wrens and cliff swallows. Or try the irrigated picnic areas near RGV or Cottonwood Campground.Moderator note: That's such a cool pic I changed it to an inline IMG instead of just a link.
My problem is I don't like sitting and waiting for birds. I like to be moving, hiking, climbing, doing active stuff.
