Easy if you've ever encountered this creature before.
First time I did I almost passed out. STUNNING creature.
Not stunning shots, but good enough for ID.
Yes, those eyes are red.
Same spp., natch, diff. sexes.
Birds were at Joshua Tree NP this January.
Please fling guesses of all sorts in comments.
And THIS is what my peeps do when I ask them to point to where
we'll be hiking (mostly off trail) so y'all can see, too.
The ridge we'd be walking toward & around was AHEAD.
Lord, but I love those people.
