Photo: Heron Hiding in the Tree

Here is a smaller heron hiding in the trees at McCormick Ranch Park.

We have a lot of birds along the green belt in Scottsdale.

Many are migratory birds. Some people would not believe we have so many birds even though we live in the desert.

Enjoy some of our travel photos of the Patterns of Tanzania at our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

This looks more like a photo that I would show from Costa Rica rather than Arizona.

It is amazing that there is such a different variety of birds here and all throughout Arizona. Fun to catch them while you can!

There are a lot more herons here than one would think.

Love to watch them along the greenbelt lakes. So graceful and when they fly they are really a sight to behold.

I had to click the picture to see the cute little guy.

I used to think that herons and ibises and other shorebirds were restricted to the southeast, but recently I have seen them everywhere I go. It makes me wonder if they have always had a wider range or is the range is changing.
