Joe and I both woke up today with sore throats so a hike we had planned was postponed...maybe tomorrow? So instead, we decided to take a ride out to Madera Canyon. Its about a 45 minute ride (from Tucson) down I 19 south towards Nogales. We took exit 63 and followed the brown signs.
We did park at the visitor center and took the 1.7 mile nature walk.
This is the mystery hummingbird...I have looked and looked.
The common spring hummingbirds for the area are Broad-billed, Magnificent, Anna's and Broad-tailed. I studied all of them and couldn't make a match.
After our walk, we continued in Pearl to the end of the road...about 2 miles. There are several hikes we are interested in so the plan is a return trip.
Our pups were glad to see us...
Happy Friday! Until next time, take care and...
