Click, click . . . My camera was whirling like a dervish this morning. Until I can get them all sorted, here is one that I like. Please meet Bachelor Bob. We call him that because he sits on a post somewhere and makes a special call that we interpret as trolling for a mate. He gave only a few calls, but we have heard it go on for HOURS! Who could resist that jaunty look?
There was a whole tribe of these guys, and I am trying to formulate a good story about what they are doing. It involves a pretty girl and three guys!
Also out this morning were some finches, the roadrunner, mockingbirds, at least one woodpecker, some cactus wrens, the playful thrasher babies that you will hear about in a few days, some happy yellow flowers, and a butterfly.
The beautiful mountains are “out” this morning, too, with their topknots of fluffy clouds. It is a gorgeous scene at this time of year – everything is so green, and the temperature barely clears 80 degrees during the hottest part of the day.
It’s a wonderful time to be alive! ;->
