Bird watching at Grand Canyon North Rim

I am not the best birder but occasionally I get lucky.

01 Yellow-rumped warbler in ponderosa pine Walhalla lunch spot NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x795)

The other day after my lunch out on the Walhalla Plateau I spotted this Yellow-rumped warbler.

02 Swainson's hawk on meadow NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x767)

Then while out with visiting company (see tomorrow’s post for more about that) we saw this (I think) Swainson’s hawk in a meadow searching for food.

Wow Gaelyn, what beautiful photos. Your warbler is so bright. Ours are tiny and normally brownish. I love the hawk out in the field too. Excellent sightings. Have a wonderful week. (((Hugs))) Jo

They don't always pose but it is still fun when they pop out for a sighting.

Nice bird finds.
I don't tend to concentrate on looking for birds, but I'm always thrilled when I get a good look and a photo.

Nice! I really like the warbler shot with the pine bough as the background!

I have often considdered to become a birdwatcher, but I just don't have time inbetween everything else. So I am just a bird spotter.
