Whale Watching — Photo Essay by kenne

Tom, Patty, Joy and I chartered a boat to go fishing in the Sea of Cortez off the coast of Puerto Peñasco and were able to get in some whale watching on the way out — two for one! Others were out just for the whale watching. — kenne

Interesting Fact:

There are several ways woodpeckers have adapted to all the head-banging,
including having a long tongue that wraps around their brain. — kenne

Hear the starter noise?

Let It Shine

Morning awakens the light
Slowly stirring the heart
Revived from the sleeping night
By a singing Mexican chickadee.

Accounting for the moment
Can we ever know
How age built a monument
From what it doesn’t show?

I don’t mind
As long as you know
I will make it shine
By allowing time to slow.

Looking for Sonoran Toads in Sabino Canyon   2 comments

Above the Dam-2971 blogThe monsoon rains bring new life to the Sonoran Desert. This past week has experienced some very good rain fall, especially in the mountains. The start of the monsoon season brings out the Sonoran toads, but they breed in water, and even with the recent rains we have had several months of no rain and Sabino Creek remains dry. The above photo was taken this morning, but based on sighting a few miles up the creek, there maybe water flowing over the dam by night fall.

Sonoran Toads-2964 blogDown from the dam, there are few pools of water that Jeanne, Dan and I explored this morning and found some toads. The mating season will last only a few days, so with more rain expected today and tomorrow, and with water coming down the creek, the toads will probably be very active the next couple of days.
