Artist's Description

If you stand close to the edge of the Grand Canyon on a moonless night (which I don’t recommend), you can sometimes hear these rare nocturnal ostriches of northern Arizona climbing about the cliffs; but a daytime sighting is very unusual indeed. As soon as this one heard my camera click he scurried into a small crevasse and was gone, fortunately I was able to get this one shot before he disappeared. I’m hoping to go back soon to catch one of them training their young in the art of cliff climbing. I understand the best time to catch this training session is right at sunrise. Let me know if you happen to be in the Grand Canyon area and see any ostrich droppings at the bottom of the cliffs. That’s a sure sign that the herd is on the move and I need to act fast if I’m going to get me another good shot. Enjoy!
