These are a few pictures taken on a business trip to
Tucson, Arizona the first week of March 2005 (and again in 2006, and most recently in 2012). Got there a
day early and had a long wait before the flight home, so I managed to get to a
few great spots, including the Sweetwater wetlands in NW Tucson, Agua Caliente
Park in NE Tucson, Patagonia-Sonoita Preserve, Madera Canyon, and the
Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Okay, I cheated a little at the latter spot....the
broad-billed, owls, oriole, and pyrrhuloxia were in the aviaries.
