5/2/09 - Powerline Road...And Beyond!

Yes, there are still a lot of birding opportunities in Portal, Arizona. When Sally Spofford died a number of years ago a dagger was stuck into the hearts of birders all over the world. Many people had received their first looks at many southwestern bird species in her yard which was open to the birding public. The Spofford house is no longer open to birders but in the interim several other places have opened up for birders to visit. Dave Jasper, a local bird guide, opened his yard in the "Big...
