By Heather / January 23, 2020

It’s the last day of our trip and we went boating on Patagonia Lake. But the birding started in the parking lot of our hotel in Tombstone. While Rob was on the phone with the office I took the opportunity to check out the little birds fluttering in the trees around the hotel. Jackpot! A […]

Off To The Everglades And The Flamingo Visitor Center

By Heather / January 14, 2020

We were off to the Everglades and the Flamingo Visitor Center today. And although there are flamingos that are native to Florida they are only in specific pockets in the south of Florida. They are occasionally seen in the area we are heading but they are more of a rarity than the norm. I didn’t […]
