Woo Hoo, saw a new bird
Saturday, June 08, 2013
Sarge and I drove out to Leona Valley, and stopped at the famous Hawk Tree. No Hawk, but I saw Orioles flying about.
This one was shy.
I saw a bird fly into one of the trees. It was a ways from where I was standing. After I took the picture I realized it was a Phainopepla. Apparently they are in our area year round, but this is only the 2nd time I have seen this bird. The first time was at Elizabeth Lake. I will have a link at the end of my blog so you can read about the bird. They really are pretty.
Across the street is the Cherry Farm.
And the Farmer working his land.
I drove down to check on the Raven nest, but Mama must have been off looking for food, so I drove further down the road to another tree. At first I thought I was looking at a Raven. After I took the picture I realized it was a very young Red Tail Hawk. Woo Hoo. More Hawks in our area.
I was pulling into the driveway, and noticed a Dove having a snack on the little table DH made. I took the pictures from inside the car.
I decided to check on our Veggie Garden. It's looking pretty good.
Sunflowers and Corn.
