I’ve been just hanging out at home working and gardening. But I’m very entertained by all my birds at the house. I put out lots of water and a variety of food.
Around the fourth of July the calliope and rufous hummingbirds arrived at my house. So for the next few months I will have four varieties to enjoy.
Lots of babies around home the last couple weeks.
A very good friend of mine built me a bird house a couple years ago. This year I was happy to report that a Bewick Wren nested in it this year.
Not long after noticing the nest box was occupied they flew the coop!
While walking Scarlett I saw a baby Canyon Towhee baby. I stood at watched it and it hopped over to me out in the street…much to the parents’ distress!
So I picked it up and put it in a safer place…to the parents’ relief! Lol!
I had a ladderback woodpecker bring its young in to feed on the bark butter I put out for them.
My spotted towhees had a couple of kids. Took me awhile to recognize what species the juveniles were.
One day I got to go visit Bill and Capulin Springs and spotted a couple of good birds. One of which was a new sighting for me. A Grace’s Warbler.
I’ve been noticing a few new butterflies around home in the last couple weeks.
Still not good at identifying butterflies. Will have to research a few of these further.
Scarlett can go hiking now so I should have more interesting posts in the future 🙂
