Hi All

It was a beautiful last day of the year birding the Arivaca Cienega today.
We had six birders, two from Indiana, one from BC Canada, One from Alaska.
The highlight of the field trip came at the end when we had a Crested
Caracara fly over the parking lot just as we were getting ready to leave.
The area is just full of Towhees, Canyon , Abert's and Green-tailed.

Happy New Year
