After I packed up and left Whitewater Draw, I met up with a Birding Friend in Pearce/Sunsites and he took me on a Loop around the Kansas Settlement Area, eventually ending up at Cochise Lake in Willcox.....

This is some serious Prime Territory for Raptors...The Grasslands and Agricultural Fields out here are a Hunting Heaven for these Guys...I could have Photographed Red-tailed Hawks all Day...There had to be a least a Dozen per Square Mile. But we were after some Ferruginous Hawks, and saw at least 2, among the Red-taileds and a couple of Northern Harriers. Other Birds and Critters to be found as well...

The Light wasn't good for Photography as the Sun was High and there was Heat coming off the Ground in literal Waves in places...Didn't think I would see such a Phenomenon at barely 50 Degrees, but there was no Mistaking the Distortion rising from the Ground...It really screwed up some Ground Shots, but I'll post of few of Interest.

After my Friend and I parted ways, I ate Dinner in Willcox before heading to the Chiricahuas for a couple more Days of Camping...(Triplog and Photoset still to come)

It was a good Day, catching up with a Friend, meeting a New One and seeing Areas down here that I had not yet seen... :)
