I've been working for Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory in Southeast Arizona since early January. I get paid to go count grassland birds. Before the job started, I graced the Salton Sea with my presence. 3 targets were all destroyed including the infamous Bean Goose, Pacific Golden Plover and Glaucous-winged Gull. A great way to start 2011. Here are some terrible pictures for you to enjoy.
|Bean Goose (left) and Greater White-fronted Goose (right). Notice how much more awesome the Bean Goose is than the White-fronted.|
|This Pacific Golden Plover was too easy|
|Here is a not-so-ruddy Ruddy Ground Dove from the Gilbert Water Ranch.|
|Williamson's Sapsuckers are better than all other sapsuckers. It's a fact.|
Tune in next time for some more pictures and ramblings and whatever else I feel like putting on here.
