Wifey & I took what will likely be our only outing this year, due to the COVID situation. Fortunately, we were able to get out just before all this mess broke in the US. My wife likes to take her mom to Vegas for an annual getaway. This time, I decided to tag along (for the first time) and it turned out well for me. We captured numerous "lifers". I was absolutely astonished by the variety of species we saw.

Our new new captures on the trip included: Costa's Hummingbird, Gambel's Quail, Anna's Hummingbird, Ruddy Duck, Cinnamon Teal, Eared Grebe, Horned Grebe, Black Phoebe, Verdin, Aberts Towhee, Crissal Thrasher, Black-Tailed Gnat Catcher, Golden Eagle, Hermit Thrush, Green-Winged Teal, Red Shafted Northern Flicker, and Brewers Blackbird.

There were numerous others (non-Lifers) as well, including but not limited to: Bufflehead, Mergansers, Great Horned Owl, Canadian Geese, Snow Geese, Great Egrets, Blue Heron, Osprey (yes, Osprey in Las Vegas!), Mallards, RT Hawks, Northern Harrier, Greater Road Runner, Yellow Shafted Northern Flicker, Various Species of Sparrow, House Finch, Pigeons, Various Gulls, and who knows how many more.

Some of these are not technically the best, but when ya get a "decent" lifer, it's exciting nonetheless.

Backgrounds out there can be superior to what we have in the flatlands of TX.

Dove on a rock & Gimbals Quail. The quail were incredibly skittish & difficult to photograph.
