It was a slow week for birding. I went to a place that I used to stop in at on my way home from work, that was lush and dark, where I used to get some good shots but most of the trees had been cut down so there were no birds! Very sad and disappointing. So that left only my old standby, Granada Park, and our yard as my birding destinations for the past week.
I’ve strategically placed a few more pots of flowers around in an attempt to have some nice backdrops (and nectar) for the many hummers who frequent our yard but, so far, they still prefer the tree branches and feeders.
Wouldn’t these guys look prettier if they were sipping from flowers or at least closer to flowers?
And attracting more butterflies would be a plus, too, although they seem to prefer our lantana.
And this is all I saw at Granada Park:
A butterball? A snowball? Maybe a domestic goose, napping.
Hoping for some more exotic locales in the near future…
