White Sands Bird 32297

White Sands Bird 32297

Say's Phoebe (Sayornis saya)

100% crop

With seeing almost no kind of wildlife in the White Sands, it's a shock when one appears,
like this bird which flew by out of nowhere and gave me only a split second to get a shot of it.

Photographed at the White Sands National Monument near Alamogordo, New Mexico USA.
