While Steve and I went out hiking in Madera Canyon today, Dexter stayed behind at Central Pet, a lovely boarding and grooming facility right next door to De Anza RV Resort. Steve and I checked the place out a few days ago. We talk to the staff, took a tour, and were impressed with what we saw. When we picked up Dexter this afternoon they sent him home with a swag bag and a report card indicating that he enjoyed his stay! It's great to have a safe and comfortable place for him to play while we are out hiking the Canyons looking for birds. He was glad to see us, tired out from his big adventure, and is happy to be back in our little house-on-wheels!
Steve and I are also tired but happy. We are madly downloading hundreds of photos and hoping to find a few keepers. We saw and tried to photograph many beautiful birds up in the canyon today. Here's just a taste...this is a Broad-billed Hummingbird I saw today!
