I made a few trips out from our base in eastern Tucson up to Mount Lemmon. It is a truly beautiful drive and its amazing to watch the vegetation change as you climb higher and higher up the mountain going from a Saguaro desert to a Ponderosa Pine forest with feet of snow! The bird life also changes along with the trees and plants. Some of the most interesting
sightings was watching a Pygmy Nuthatch excavate a cavity in a limb. There were many other new birds for the trip sighted at various locations on my way up and down the mountain.
