Saw this area on a wildlife website. It was 62 miles one way from North Phoenix and of course got a late start. I arrived around 0645 and was surprised when I opened my door. All I could here was dove....Prince would have been proud, doves were crying. In fact, the web says up to 5000 dove live here, before the September hunt :gun:

I saw the "ONE" endangered Yuma Clapper Rail and he took off before I could get a shot.

While crouching down, slapping the red army ants off my leg :stretch: I looked up and a Bobcat was 30 yards from me and yes you guessed it..... he ran off before getting a shot, the story of my life ](*,)

This area apparently burnt a few months ago, thanks to a genius farmer burning weeds in a 30 mph wind, so all of the large Salt Cedars are gone.

in the Winter up to 150 species of birds inhabit these ponds, I"ll be back. On the way home I stopped by Robbins Butte wildlife area....I milled around, but had a weird feeling about this area and swiftly left. Too many people with guns driving by :scared:

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
