We had to visit the Southwest recently, where, thankfully, the rains are off to a pretty good start. When we stopped by at the Cave Creek Ranch in Portal, AZ, we were shown a baby Elf Owl that along with a sibling had survived a concerted Acorn Woodpecker assault. Apparently there is bad blood between these two species: who knew? A shot of the birds and more on the story, unfortunately Paul Bannick wasn't along or they'd be much better, are at my blog at:
scroll past the hummer, Grosbeak and Gray Fox shots.
