Thanks to everybody who came by Three Star Owl at Wings Over Willcox — the show was a very good one for “the owl”. Cranes were seen, friends were met and re-met, many clay pieces found good new homes. And thanks also to the organizers of the Festival, who have a lot of things on their plate: birders to marshall and haul, tables and chairs to account for, vendors to wrangle, and birds to find, just to mention a few of their duties.
And, thanks to Hoover, the African Collared Dove, who once again saw me off from Scottsdale.
An excellent start to the New Year!
