Our Leaves Turn in December

... or at least late November, as on this Arizona sycamore in Madera Canyon, located on the north side of the Santa Rita Mountains of southern Arizona.

Arizona sycamore in southern Arizona's Madera Canyon.

Madera Canyon also happens to be one of the best birding spots in the country, though on the day after Thanksgiving we didn't see much more than an acorn woodpecker and some nuthatches. Come spring, though, the canyon explodes with birdsong and a carnival of feathery colors.
