Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge near
Kevin and I are in Tucson waiting for some parts to hook the jeep up to the motorhome. We decided to do some birding. We like to be active and we like birds.
I wouldn’t want to fall into this Fishhook Barrel Cactus. The hooks look wicked.
There were several Sulfur Butterflies by the visitor center. They moved too quickly for me to get a good picture of them. We decided to drive the 10 mile Pronghorn Drive. We saw several birds along the trail. Its a dirt road that is easy to drive.
After, the drive we walked the Cienaga Trail. Its a 1 1/2 mile trail known for good birding.
We met several birders on the trail. They were looking at this hawk. We all looked at him for several minutes and decided he was a Grey Hawk. These Grey Hawks come up from Mexico.
