Desert birds amaze me, some are so bright and bold in their coloration and yet others are so well camouflaged. This post has some of the more camouflaged winter residents of SE Arizona. The first set of images is from The Pond at Elephant Head.
These next two images are from Gene Reid Park Park in Tucson. It's a lot easier to get close to Canvasback and Redhead ducks when they aren't being hunted.
The next three images are captive birds of prey from the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.
