A Good Day of Birding

The campground here at Lake Havasu State Park is essentially empty because the installation of water and electricity hook-ups in the campsites is to start any day; so I was particularly pleased that my sister Kathy drove over from Sun City for the Bird Hike, and that we were also joined by a local person, Denise, who had a good birding knowledge.  Our Park Ranger Specialist, Mia LaBarbara also started with us and took the above photo.  In the photo I think I am probably explaining the difference between Pied-bill Grebes, and Eared Grebes, or maybe the difference between Lesser Scaup and Ring-necked Ducks, or God knows what.  Anyway, we had great weather and were able to identify 30 different species of birds, our largest number so far this year.
