Early one morning I saw this Javelina in a driveway,The Zebra-tailed lizard stopped to wave its black and white tail. It is said that they slowly wave their tails to hypnotize predators before running away.
A big Sonoran Desert toad lounged on the grass field in the center of the track while joggers ran laps around him.
It looked like some type of courtship display was going on. A white-winged dove kept striking this pose over and over.
A bird at the pond at Reid Park looked like it was wearing a hat.
The park is right next to Reid Park Zoo. We once saw a night heron by the flamingos at the zoo.
Zoo admission will be free on August 20th, 2009 in honor of Tucson’s 234th birthday.
