Little Friend

The local botanical garden is filled with new growth.  Vines, trees, shrubs, bulbs are in bloom.  Birds and lizards and coyotes are to be seen, and the squirrels are fatter than fat.  I was walking home from my visit when a rustling caught my ear . . . this guy was just bopping around within feet of me, and luckily I could get his portrait before he flew off to explore new territory.  This is a Dark-eyed Junco.

Yet Another One

Here is another of the four “good” bird pics I got over the weekend . . . having never been a bird watcher, once I began looking a little more closely, I really got into it.  New hobby?  Certainly a pleasant way to spend some time.

Don’t know what this fella is, so the word is out . . .

Note:  This is a young White-Crowned Sparrow, as opposed to the old ones from a few days ago.
