    • Thank you Eliza! I was amazed at how many opportunities I had to photograph the towhees. They are such beautiful birds; I feel very fortunate to have been at the right place at the right time:-)

  1. Beautiful pics of deer and some birds that I have not seen before. What a wonderful road trip. We were due to do our yearly birding road trip in couple of weeks but because of our inland drought changed our plan, and flying to another destination. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos:-)

  2. These are fantastic! Glad you got to get up there, and I look forward to going there with you sometime. These are all wonderful pics, but I can’t stop looking at that male towhee! What an incredible shot!

    • Thank you Bill! Every time I saw a towhee I was amazed at how out-in-the-open they were. I was really impressed with this area and the variety of wildlife. We definitely need to take a road trip sometime this summer. It is a perfect setup; it has a campground, and a hotel less than a mile away!

    • Thank you Tiny. I was surprised to see the turkey. I have only seen them from a distance prior to this photo. Then, slightest movement would send them ducking for cover. This one was extremely cooperative:-)
