The rain came.
It was beautiful to see waterfalls cascading down the normally dry rock mountains while driving through Chicago Valley.PHOTO
Great birding has followed the rain.
As the land warms and dries, insects are hatching everywhere. The birds have been lining up along the new Pupfish Creek Trail
|The only time I've ever seen a Verdin flycatching!(repeatedly catching insects in mid-air and then returning to the starting perch to feed)|
There are Coyote Willows, Goodings Willows, Honey Mesquite, and Screwbean Mesquite. The bulrushes, and other creekside plants give insect eating birds and excellent habitat to eat, drink, bathe, and preen.
Come and see Shoshones' Pupfish Creek for yourself!
