Picture of Peach Springs Tuff (with Big Bird Bonus)

The Internet connection at our hinterlands location is slow and undependable, so tonight is just a picture of the Peach Springs Tuff, an 18.5 million year old rhyolite tuff that covered a vast area between Peach Springs Arizona and the Mojave Desert near Barstow. It is nicely exposed along the old Route 66 in Kingman Arizona, which was one of our stops today. There also seems to be a large fledgling bird sitting on the rock and partly blocking the view, but I found it interesting. I am assuming it is a Red Tailed Hawk fledgling. Is there anyone who can confirm or correct?
