It's no Grand Canyon with their flashy bighorn sheep, condors, and elk ... but if you like your wildlife smaller and more subtle, this place rocks.
Short stroll from my house and out onto the island yielded the following:
Verdins
Vermilion Flycatchers
Lesser Goldfinch
Gambel's Quail
Black Pheobe
Redwing Blackbirds
Yellow-headed Blackbirds
American Coot
Northern Shoveler
Western Grebe
Pied-billed Grebe
Double-crested Cormorant
Spiny Softshell Turtle
Common Slider
Black-tailed Jackrabbit
Cottontail
Antelope Squirrel
Mallard Duck
Pekin Duck
Cinnamon Teal
The Spiny Softshell was a first for me.
Happy to see the 3 Amigos back together after a series of breeding-season scuffles left the male mallard out in the cold alone after the bigger, stronger Pekin Duck won the attentions of the female mallard.
I need a real camera.
Posting a pic of a real nice Gila Monster who just about came up and knocked on my front door the other day.
