Sonoran Desert Museum

Some photos of one of my most favorite places.  The Sonoran Desert Museum in Tucson.  I could sit in the hummingbird aviary all day!

  1. Lovely pictures and nice to see what you look like! Loved the owls - am about to add an owl to my Cuddlies family, so why not visit www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com in the coming weeks and maybe (once I've caught up!) I'll have some plushies to share with you as well. We'd love to see you and have you follow us - and comments, good or bad, are always very welcome.

    All the best with your plans!

  2. Beautiful photos! We plan to visit the Desert Museum in late March. I want to see the Fly-By along with everything else. I may need to go twice. I can't wait!

  3. Sandy it's one of those places you can go again and again. I've been twice now and if I lived there I would buy a membership and go all the time. It's such a magical place. A hummingbird flew up to me and wanted some of my hair for her nest. I almost cried.

  4. I love birds, I wish I lived near an aviary, at least when I worked at the nurery I got to hold a Tui and a Bellbird, they tend to get drunk on the nectar and although I should have been working I would hold onto them until they were steady again so the cats wouldn't get them. Your photo's are beautiful, and so are you and your hair would make awesome nest material :-)

  5. I adore them too Sarah. I would love to be a falconer. It would be so cool to interact with the big birds. Owls especially!
