Catching Up: Crested Caracara

Santa Cruz Flats is also a very reliable place to find Crested Caracaras -- especially during the winter months. Summers I look more along Arizona Highway 86 between Sells and Ajo.

Since it is winter, it's Santa Cruz Flats:

Catching Up: Burrowing Owl

Santa Cruz Flats is the most reliable place for finding Burrowing Owls. They are often found along Tweedy Road, Pretzler Road, and/or Philips Road. This one was taken on Tweedy just north of Pretzler.
