Clearing brings blue skies with
With snow in the mountains runoff increases in the warmer valleys and when we headed out to Sabino Canyon around 2:00 PM on Saturday for a bit of a walk, we found a low section of Snyder Ave had become a running stream.
Off course there are always the idiots in SUV's who ignore the signs.
Our daily excursions to Sabino Canyon have not given up a lot of wildlife yet, but we are working on it. Here are a male and female phainopepla. The male is pretty much all coal black while the female is gray with some white wing markings.
Cactus wrens are also pretty numerous. Usually up top on Saguaros, but also on the ground.
When walking the paths you must also be careful to avoid the deadly wood snake.
No fear of a bite, just a trip up if you are not careful.
And it is your lucky day if you pass by a rare crested saguaro.
