Start of Lake Havasu Guided Bird Walks

This morning was the official start of the guided bird walks that I will be leading daily at Lake Havasu State Park.  Actually, Jeanette’s sister Patty and her husband Kordell are here in Lake Havasu City visiting us for a couple of days, so it sounded like a good start day.  In a way they served as guinea pigs in kind of a practice run today.  And, what a test I put them thru, cold temps in the 40 degrees with stiff winds off of the lake of 25 miles an hour! They were extremely good sports and seemed or pretended very well, to enjoy it.   In all we identified 22 different species, a very good number particularly in light of the conditions. The group is shown in the photo below during our start in the Cactus Gardens.  This is not a posed photo, Kordell is pointing out a small unidentifiable bird in the bottom of a bush.

If you are a follower of Cascade Ramblings and in the area, I will be leading these guided bird hikes Wednesday thru Sunday at 10:00 starting in the Arroyo De Camino Cactus Garden.
