Pic of the Day
Black-headed Grosbeak – Madera Canyon, Arizona: Madera Canyon is well known for it variety of hummingbirds, but the area is also a wonderful location to see and photograph other species as well. Tucked away in the Santa Rita Mountains of southeast Arizona, Madera Canyon is a true birding hotspot. This Black-headed Grosbeak was photographed at the Santa Rita Lodge bird feeding station. The lodge is a great location to see hummers as well as woodpeckers and Warblers. Lesser Goldfinch, Blue Grosbeak, Mexican Jay, Gould Turkey and other species are among the non-hummer specialties. The lodge is a great place to see birds as well as use as a base of operation for birding in the southeast region of Arizona. I will post additional Madera Canyon species soon.
