Shoot Me Monday
On Saturday I drove west of Tucson past the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in search of Sage Sparrow. After an hour and a half of searching through many White-crowned Sparrows and Lark Buntings with John Higgins, we were ready to give up. As I was leaving, I spotted some movement along the side of the road. To my amazement it was a Sage Sparrow running along the ground with its tail held high. How lucky! A lifer for Christmas. I got out of my truck and signaled to John that I had seen it. We had good looks at two of them running along the ground and perched in a tree.
