Sonny Bono NWR, miscellaneous critters

Abert's Towhee. Buffy bird with dark eye and light beak. A suburb bird of Phoenix and Yuma, but also in the desert. Very limited range. I had never heard of it.

I think this is a sharp-shinned hawk. It was lurking under a tree for quite a long time.

Several white faced ibis were in the area, though this was the only one I saw in the field with the geese.

Bunnies were everywhere. The local hawks must be losing.
