Sandhill Cranes - Whitewater Draw Arizona

It was an absolutely spectacular evening. We arrived about 5:00. The clouds had rolled in giving us a glorious sunset as a backdrop of the incoming Sandhill Cranes at the Whitewater Draw, Arizona.

Greeted by a Great Egret.

Hundreds of blackbirds settled into the marsh. When they settled into the grasses you could hear a slight whoosh/rustle and then they were hidden from sight.

Cranes in the field. Very camouflaged.

The Sandhill Crane "soundtrack" when they were settled in for the night.

Gilded flicker

Not the first time I've seen a Gilded flicker  in the yard but I don't see them often.  Today, I saw one on top of the saguaro on the ridge in the backyard.

Bushtit

Funny name for a bird but I saw several flitting through some Acacia today on my Rollerblade this afternoon.
