Arizona Wild Bird Photos


Up-date as of 06/16/02


Well, now that we are back to what you might considered normal,
let's see if all the birds and other wild life will return.


Here is what my camera recorded from 4:30 A.M. through 11:30 P.M.

Please be informed that the blistering day time temperature
where I am at is averaging between 110 and 114 degrees with the humidity in the single digits.

At 4:30 A.M. the temp. was 60 degrees. Humidity approx. 20%
By 6:00 A.M. it was 80 degrees. Humidity approx. 20%
By 7:00 A.M. it was 92 degrees. Humidity approx. 17%
By 8:00 A.M. it was 102 degrees. Humidity approx. 14%
By 10:00 A.M. it was 107 degrees. Humidity approx. 10%
By 11:30 A.M. it was 112 degrees. Humidity approx. 8%
At 2:00 P.M. it was 114 degrees. Humidity approx. 5%
Didn't get under 100 degrees until about 5:30 P.M.
At 7:30 when the sun started to go behind the mountains the temp.
started dropping radically.
At darkness about 8:30 P.M. the temp. was 70 degrees.
At about midnight when I left the temp. was back to approx. 60 degrees.

Don't know how accurate my gages are so I say approx. on all of the above.

This seems to be the norm for the last 3 weeks, and more than likely will be for weeks to come.

The Beach Towel I put over my canopy chair soaks up about one gallon of water when I wet it down.
I then hang it over my chair's canopy and it is completely dried out in about 30 to 45 min., if even that long.


You do not have to be crazy to do what I am doing,
but I do believe it surely would help.


OK, let's see some of those birds that are crazy enough to
come out here in the blistering 114 degree heat and eat my seed and drink my water.
