Turkey vultures, roadrunners, hummingbirds
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
We are headed to San Diego this afternoon, after I teach my class at noon, for my nephew's little league baseball tournament. I just wanted to post a few pictures before we left. I will be bringing my laptop with me so I can log in and spin the wheel, at least...LOL.
I never know what I am going to find when I walk outside. This was an unusual sight. We see turkey vultures flying overhead, but rarely are they perched. Do you suppose they had their eye on something?
This next picture is the mother roadrunner who came to our patio. We now know what a roadrunner mating dance looks like. Haven't got a picture of that yet.
This next picture is "my" area...where I spend a lot of time. I have several places for the hummingbirds to perch. You can see one perched on the left side of the picture...look closely...LOL.
A roadrunner at the water fountain.
Hummingbird at dusk guarding the feeder.
I've seen six at one time, perched at various places in the garden, but I have never gotten a picture of more than two at a time.
And last, the baby roadrunner!
