So we rented a cheap car from budget rental, and it was REALLY ugly. With tank slits for windows (not exactly condusive to bird watching). By the same engineer who created the PT Cruiser. Comfortable and not likely to be stolen though, so thus equiped, we set out of the city towards Madera Canyon to stay at the Santa Rita Lodge.
Once at the lovely lodge (which I strongly recommend to any birder-basic rooms, superb location) we went for a short hike and saw (lifers for me):
Arizona (formerly Stricklands) Woodpecker
Broad Billed Hummingbird
Black Chinned Hummingbird
Great Tailed Grackle
Which was pretty good considering we didnt head out until 5pm.
