Arizona Day 2: Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum & Saguaro National Park
Day 2 was absolutely gorgeous! We spent the first half of our day at The Arizona – Sonora Desert Museum and Zoo where we got to see an awesome bird demonstration. I may have gone over board with the bird photos, but they are just so majestic! Most of the birds were in captivity but some, like the Cactus Wren and Gila Woodpecker were just hanging out.

Western Tanager Stellers Jay Coati Greater Roadrunner The prettiest snakes I’ve ever seen. Their scales looked like seashells. Fortunately they were behind glass!
The second half of our day we got Cactus crazy on the west side of Saguaro National Park!
