A Great Evening Drive

If you would like a great evening drive try going out Lake Mary Road (Coconino County 3) just before sunset. Leaving a little before 7PM we saw elk along side the road before we got to Lower Lake Mary.  At lower Lake Mary we saw more elk and five bald eagles.  One of the bald eagles was an adult the other four include first second and third year birds by the criteria in the Sibley Bird Guide. There were also four great blue herons in the lake.  We went up as far as the osprey overlook and watched the osprey feed their young.  On the way back more elk were coming out of the woods along Lower lake Mary.  And the sunset was beautiful.
