Welcome to Week #43 of the Bird Weekly Photo Challenge. Week #43 challenge is Birds with chicks or Baby Birds or Nests with Eggs.

Week #42 challenge is Birds you have seen in the past two weeks. We spent the whole day looking for the American Flamingo with NO SUCCESS. The bird had been seen for 4 days straight prior to our trip.

This part of Death Valley is 282 feet (85.5 meters) below sea level. We were only part of the way down towards the bottom.
