Anna’s Hummingbirds, always the star of our yard when they pose for me. Their colors change so much depending on how the sun hits them.
A first in my yard, an American Kestrel, male. He didn’t stay long and I haven’t seen him since. I just didn’t want him eating my hummers or verdins…but he was exciting to see.
Female and male House Finch.
Everyday that I am able to sit out in my yard in the morning (not enough), this Gila Woodpecker drops by for a quick snack and takes off before I get a good photo.
I like to think this is one of the woodpecker’s feathers…
Don’t eat my birds, please, Harris’s Hawk.
The ubiquitous European Starling, invasive species to all of the US but handsome and entertaining. We don’t seem to have as many Grackles when these guys are around…
Inca Dove, above.
This dragonfly (a Meadowhawk) is serious about my Sirius XM antenna.
My Northern Mockingbird friends are hanging around more again.
And the little flighty Verdins at the hummer feeders…
Look closely. The beautiful may be small. ~ Immanuel Kant
