I have more wildlife to share with everyone today, as well as a beautiful sunrise. We don’t get many of these orange ones in the mornings. This color is usually reserved for sunsets around here.
We’ve had a bird of prey visiting us almost daily so he can use the birdbath. I’m usually washing dishes when he makes his appearance, so I was lucky to get these shots so far. I’m still hoping to get one of him splashing in the water. I know he does because he’s all wet and displaces half the water out of the birdbath.
I was lucky to get this one too of a sparrow feeding her chick. I spotted the youngster on the table and grabbed my camera to wait for her to come back.
And here's more quail.
Of course, the orioles are still steady at it and drain the hummingbird feeder in a week. This giant feeder holds six cups of nectar. The poor hummers compete for their time to drink the sweet nectar. I’ve started making extra and keep it in bottles in the fridge. We have five females on there daily. These gals hang out in the trees all day and frolic around chasing each other and feeding. The males are more elusive and it’s harder to get a shot of them.
