My father flew in to town last week and he brought some cooler weather with him… cool enough that we were able to go to the Riparian Preserve and tour the area around Palo Verde.
We saw plenty of bird-life and photographed most of it. It was nice to be able to spend time with my Dad and introduce him to the Burrowing Owls and stake out the Hummingbird perches together. There were successes coupled with frustrations, but I think we both walked away with some nice shots.
I will be glad when the weather cools down a little more… then I will be able to take my son to the Riparian Preserve without fear of him overheating!
Here is a selection from this week:
