The Gila is definitely a special place. I was there way back in 1970 while I was in the Army at Fort Bliss and have been back two more times in the last ten years after mulies with no success, but saw deer both times.

My favorite tattletales of the outdoors are a handful of little birds that live in my state of Ohio. Maybe yours too. A tip for the upcoming season.
There are Blue Jays, Cardinals, Chickadees, Killdeer, and Sparrows that all have language...
