Late winter at the Canyon

Last winter at the Grand Canyon was so warm and dry that we never really got any snow to speak of and it never really got cold. This turns out to have been, perhaps, forewarning of the terrible drought we’d experience later on in California.

On the other hand, the mild climate allowed some otherwise neotropical migrants to remain for the winter, like the Hammond’s Flycatcher that overwintered for the second year in a row.

Here is a collection of photos from the Canyon, including Sage/Sagebrush Sparrows, the Hammond’s Flycatcher, California Condors, and other creatures that called the Canyon their winter home.
