Friday, March 18, 2011 - Trip to Toroweap with two guests from Russia.
Big, beautiful catch basins one mile from the overlook at Toroweap.
Toroweap Point is in the background.
These pools are called tin-ya-ha by the Paiute Indians. All of the pools had Fairy Shrimp
swimming in them.
After the sun goes down; mammals, birds, and reptiles visit these pools for a drink.

I took these photos yesterday (3-4-2011) at the South Rim National Park at the Grand Canyon. This guy came flying up and found something to eat in the snow. I zoomed in but was only about 8 feet or so from it.
This photo is from the Cornell School of Ornithology website.
Is it the same bird? Looks like the bird I photographed has a longer tail.
