" Reid Park"
19 bird species recorded & submitted to E-bird by Kathie Brown & Chris Rohrer
Not a lifer, but Egrets beg to be photographed:)
Last but not least, we ended our birding day at Saguaro National Park. This Park is gorgeous and I can only imagine what it must look like when the wildflowers are in full bloom in a few weeks time. This is a great wildlife and birding destination if you visit the Tucson area with nice trails and picnic areas.

Thanks to Kathie and her very keen eye, I never EVER would imagine to see and photo a Great-horned Owl resting on top of a saguaro cactus! We all agreed this was the highlight of the day.
Also, Northern Cardinals in the desert ................ wow!

At the close of this amazing day I have to thank Kathie and Chris for a wonderful birding experience. They are experts at all that is birding - identifying, counting and submitting important data each time they bird. I am so grateful that they took the time and patience to show me their world:)
