|My early morning departure before school starts.|
A Verdin. Today a Verdin stopped by my garden patch. And I feel lucky.
PS. To Warren, Bob, and all of my other birding friends across the ocean, I discovered today that we also have a variety of Tit that I am so envious of in your area. And it's this little guy above. They are the only member of the Penduline-tit Family (Remizidae) found here in North America! How cool is that?! Apparently they have a fondness for sweets which include hummingbird feeders:) And a side note to myself...I need to clean my windows.
And speaking of new visitors, here is a shot of Momma Owl whooo I reported on this past Friday. Apparently she has been nesting here for 3 years and has raised an owlet or two every year. I wish her the best as she nests here in these dangerous lands. The wildlife refuges can't do anything about this. The nest is protected federally and I was reminded to remind others of this. However we are a school of over 2000 people and several people believe it's best that things be kept quiet. But there are others of us who will be watching.....carefully.
