Montosa Canyon July 13, 2012

We took a day off from our couples trip and then loaded up the in-laws, kids, and dogs in the car for a trip down to Southern Arizona for a one night family get away.  We left early in the morning and arrived in Montosa Canyon with McDonald's breakfast for everyone, a feeder with nectar, and water for the dogs.
No sooner did we get out of the car but we spotted the Plain-capped Star-Throat perched on the tree across the road.  A scramble for the camera and this flighty bird was gone.  No photo for us.  We set up the feeder to try to get him back and then ate.  We walked the dogs and kids and waited.  We spotted other hummingbirds but the Plain-capped Star-Throat never came back for a photo opportunity.  We loaded everyone in the car and headed to the Santa-Rita Lodge in Madera Canyon for a pit stop.
