Our last week in El Mirage was a busy one. My cousin Mike came into town from Montana to help his friend paint his home. Then our good friends Bob and Kathy Loomis came in from Virginia Beach. Mike and I were able to get out for a couple rounds of golf with his friends from Montana between days of painting. We also were able to get in a Coyotes hockey game and a Royals Spring Training game.
Early one morning we trekked out into the desert to track down the elusive LeConte's Thrasher. Thanks to Mike's eagle eye we were able to find a life bird for him as well as Bob and Kathy.
Bob and I were able to see 2 Royals games. Josie took Bob and Kathy to the horse races. On that day they also had camel and ostrich races. A good time was had by all.
Spring is in full bloom here in the Valley of the Sun, with all the cacti and trees blooming.
Beside the birds, other desert creatures are also out looking for mates.
We left Pueblo El Mirage on March 31st. We had a great six months there and had a lot of fun and made a lot of memories with great new friends. We are now in Southeast Arizona with Bob and Kathy hoping to find a lot of good birds and make even more memories.
