Apache Trail, Superstition Mountains, AZ

Ferd and I took a short drive on the Apache Trail into the Superstition Mountains. At the Tortilla Flats, we saw 3 life birds! We saw at least 3 Phainopeplas, a Gila Woodpecker and a Chihuahuan Raven!

The Phainopepla

The Gila Woodpecker uses the Saguaro cactus for nesting.

We were very lucky to see the Chihuahuan Raven’s white neck feathers which are infrequently displayed.

Three life birds in one day. Wow!
