Hi all,
The monsoon still seems perhaps even better than a normal one in the US Southwest, a piece of news that doesn't fit the pattern of bad news lately. (Many Northwest birds are known to leave the Northwest early and head to the SW and NW Mexico in hopes of rain there.)
Delia and I are back. We ducked lightning bolts and got at least some rain every day, we got tracked by Border Patrol agents, we hosted Turtle researchers and Bat researchers,  saw our first Bats at close range, ducked off a trail for a Bear family, trekked 9 miles in 95 degree heat, and picked up a few lifers while bursting into E-birds top-1000 for Arizona.  Seattle seems boring by comparison.
Here's the blog and the movie, which is just me ranting:
