Greater Roadrunner

Up and out at sunup (0700). Spent about an hour and a half. Got some good closeups of another roadrunner. Also got some shots of our Common Raven. Saw 9 species this morning. Shot 635 photos, saved 32 (which is a lot to save). A reminder that I email a daily BirdNotes to selected people, if you would like to recieve Birdnotes similar to these blogs, go to About the Author Page and sign up.
