>> We just returned from an 8 day birding trip to New Mexico, 2.5 days of which were spent dodging wild weather. Yesterday Santa Fe got over 8 inches of snow with whiteout conditions and temperatures 37 degrees below normal. Despite the weather we had a good time and got in some good birding.

>> Our favorite bird that we were not able to photo was the Common Black Hawk. A pair is nesting in SW Albuquerque.

>>

>> The most co-operative bird was a Broad-tailed Hummingbird that was attracted to Karen's fuchsia colored visor and perched two feet from her head. Neither other hummingbirds, my taking photos or 40 mph wind gusts could drive it from its perch. Here is a video:
