Zone-tailed hawk in San Pedro Riparian National Consevation Area
Not great photos but I need help identifying – I believe it’s zone-tailed only because I thought it was a vulture, flying in that V-shape and so dark, but I was surprised to see its face when I zoomed in!
Green-tailed towhee at San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area
Would you have guessed that this thing is a towhee?!? I was still going through the field guide when my husband found it by Googling something like “green bird with red mohawk in Arizona.” Obviously a lifer.
