Day 21- Creeks & Canyons

View of ‘Main Street’, Tombstone

We decided to take an early morning stroll around Tombstone before heading off birding. There were few people around and the low angle of the sun added to the atmosphere of this quintessential ‘wild west’ town. After a breakfast of coffee and ‘bear claws’, at the Charleston bridge – which spans the San Pedro River, we headed for Escapule Wash and then the San Pedro House reserve. At the latter we enjoyed a delightful walk, with plenty of birding interest. After a snack lunch, over-looking the bird feeders, we went to Miller Canyon, stopping off at Beatty’s Guest Ranch to view their hummingbird feeders. Nothing new species-wise but a pleasant walk all the same.
