A Rare Winter Visitor - Wings On Wed.

                                White-winged Scoter Range Map

Every Thursday I always look forward to read birder Eric Moore's (also owner of Jays's Bird Barn here in Prescott) articles in the Daily Courier.Eric's last post indicted there have been sightings of a White-winged Scoter hanging out at Willow Lake, which equates to 'extremely rare' in these parts.So I headed out to Willow Lake with low hopes of actually spotting this bird.I went to the location of the sightings and sure enough,there he was! The range map suggests this Scoter is a bit off course and is wintering in Prescott, Az. instead of California or Mexico.So very happy and lucky to get these photos and of course Eric's valuable information :)

Curve-billed Thrasher - Wed. Wings


                                                 Curve-billed Thrasher  -  Tucson, Arizona

While visiting family in Tucson over the holiday I was glad to have my camera on hand as you never know when a photo opportunity will happen - like in a Circle K parking lot:)
