Here are couple of images from Cibola located in the floodplain of the lower Colorado River in Sonoran desert. Winter is the best time to visit this area. It reaches 120 degrees in summer here.

Great Kiskadee

April 5th, 2008, seetharam

Great Kiskadee is an instantly recognizable largest flycatcher. I have had a pleasure of watching and photographing this elusive bird closely at Martin’s Ranch in Edinburg, South Texas. Thanks to wonderful people John and Audrey for their southern hospitality and giving me opportunity for watching this bird. I have had an opportunity to watch and photograph many other Texas varieties like western kingbird, brown thrasher, painted bunting, ground dove and many more which I have not processed yet.

Great Kiskadee, South Texas

I had a pleasure meeting famous outdoor writer Dr. Robert Fulton. Thank you professor for signed copy of your “Swamp Drifter“. I just finished reading it. It is just wonderful. I have learned a lot from it.
