Saw two neat things today at Valley of Fire!

A good photo of a Phainopepla at Atlatl Rock today.
These are the guys that fly up from Mexico in the spring to eat the Mistletoe berries.

And my first sighting of "the old man" for 2012!

Juvenile Chuckwalla

The opportunity to see a juvinile chuckwalla is a rare treat.
Most of the time you simply see a streak as it darts off to safety.
This particular chuckwalla is less than a year old.
