Sonoran Venturing – Photos On December 27, 2017December 27, 2017 By Marcel SuchIn Birding, Photography Just a handful of photos from my recent trip to Sonora, México! All photos © Marcel Such. Birding the basin above Arroyo Santa Barbara for the ReMM Christmas Bird Count Photography in low-light can be a challenge, but Colima Pygmy-Owl is well worth it Five-striped Sparrow in its shrub of choice The trail to Sierra de Álamos was fully socked in, rainy, and windy on the day of the Álamos Christmas Bird Count. A little break in the weather Crane Hawk can be a challenging bird in this area of the world! Finally managed a decent photo of a Greater Roadrunner…even if it was so close I could not quite fit the entire bird into one frame! Another species that almost never makes it north to the states, the Social Flycatcher! Birding stinks…when you visit the Álamos dump in search of first state record Common Grackle (lowest left bird), along with the abundant Bronzed Cowbird Sinaloan Crows were also quite numerous at the dump! A candid photo of Raymond Van Buskirk, aka the most fashionable birder in the world Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email a link to a friend (Opens in new window)MoreClick to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...

Love the Crane Hawk take-off!
wait, I thought Sonora was a desert. And the photos do not look anything like that, lots of trees, grass etc. Nice location.
Sonora is a state in Mexico, after which the desert was named!
