Moon Before Yule

Moon Over Camelback Mountain

This was the moon on December 10th, early evening, at 97.9%. I haven’t been out photographing much with holiday shopping, get-togethers, home repair issues, and quite a bit of rain for Phoenix.

Orange-crowned Warbler

My Orange-crowned Warbler, Tink, has decided to spend her 4th winter here in our yard. I’m always so happy when she returns and make sure there is plenty of grape jelly for her enjoyment.

This tiny snail appeared after one of our rains. I put it into one of our outdoor plant pots and haven’t seen it since.

Here are a few more of our winter birds:

Curve-billed Thrasher
Verdin
Gila Woodpecker
Anna’s Hummingbirds, male and female
Inca Dove
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Audubon’s
Ferguson

Tony used Christmas lights to make the peace symbol but we will probably keep it in our front window year-round because why not?

Happy Holidays!

  1. Your bird photos are pretty fantastic, as always. I really love those moon shots. Good to hear you too enjoy get-togethers. We had a big Christmas open house last evening that was wonderful. Wishing you and yours a Christmas filled with love, laughter, and many blessings!
