A different type of ice fishing

Before this week, my bird photography had been pretty much unplanned capturing of what I ran across on roadsides or outside of my house. Prodded on by professional bird photographer friend Bruce, I for the first time sat and actually waited for birds to appear.

Today was a pretty successful day of photographing birds. I probably saw more new birds today than in any other day since I became aware of birds. Above is a male phainopepla. Phainopepla are a bit shy, but at Sabino Canyon, they seem a little less skittish.
