Male Bullocks Oriole

Today I saw not one, not two, not three, but FOUR Bullocks Orioles flitting around my backyard fountain this morning. It looked like a family with Mom, Dad, (in this picture taken from inside the house) and two young males. Happy Mother's Day to me!

Bullock's Oriole at the Hummingbird feeder

My first time sighting of a Bullock's Oriole (immature male) sipping nectar from my hummingbird feeder! I never want to stop getting excited over the little things.

First chicks of the season!

I knew I had a Gambel's quail family in the yard. I've seen and heard them all spring. Today, I saw Mama Quail, Papa Quail, and their newly hatched chicks at the fountain in the front. The water flow in hasn't been working very well. I hope they got some water--it's hot and dry outside!
