Birding The Azure Gate

After breakfast this morning I though I would walk around our property with my camera just to see what was going on.

First, I wanted to see if there were any signs of baby Cooper's Hawk's in the nest. Mom was there moving around a bit but since the nest is 60 feet off the ground it's hard to tell:

Next a quick check of the Anna's Hummingbird nest:

Then a nice Broad Billed Hummer -- both male and female:

A Lucy's Warbler on one of our Creosote Bushes:

And, finally a Rufous Winged Sparrow seemed to want his photo taken:

Gambel's Quail
Lesser Goldfinch
House Finch
House Sparrow

Curved Billed Thrasher
