Yesterday I set up 10 feeders in the desert south of the town, right next to the irrigation canal. This morning I set up to see what had been attracted to the area. Not very much was happening, so I will continue to bait the area with food and return next week for more observation
I did manage to see this fellow. He was keeping a very close eye on me and took off as soon as I fired off a couple of shots, but I was quite pleased with this one.
During October I decided to take Alfie and Oscar on an overnight camping trip to Lake Pleasant. It was an eventful trip with plenty of birdlife to capture. However, the real excitement came when the tent fell down after sunset and we had to relocate to sleep in the car! That is the first time a tent has ever fallen down on me! Alfie really didn’t settle and was disturbed by the nocturnal wildlife that was in abundance. It ended up being an adventure that I will probably only do on my own next time!
