We came down out of the Santa Rita Mountains onto flatter pastureland. We spotted a couple Cassin’s Kingbirds in one of the fields. One was perched on a weed stalk, the other was perched on the top wire of a roadside fence. Mom stopped the car, and I got out. As I approached, the one on the fence flew away from me and landed lower down on the fence further away from me.
