PATAGONIA LAKE STATE PARK, ARIZONIA
Patagonia Lake State Park is a birder's paradise. We had a great spot on the lake just a short walk from the bosque woodland area where the birds congregate. The weather was cool and there were several trails through the grass covered hills surrounding the lake.
When we walked the creekside trail in the bosque woodland, a vermillion flycatcher would often follow along -playing hide and seek with us.
Sometimes we shared the trail with a herd of cattle.
And there was this, but we have no sightings to report. We did see a lot of birds, butterflies and plenty of scenic views....
