Here’s me getting busted by this lovely female Spotted Towhee (Pipilo maculatus) sitting on the fence with the SalmonBerry Bush. I haven’t seen her this season, but she showed up today and I’m happy! So will her mate I guess!
Here’s a female Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) deep in the Butterfly bush. As she sat here she would casually reach over and have a drink from the nearby blooms!!
A female Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) shinning bright in the morning sun!
A female Black-headed Grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus)
