Birding Bonanza

This and the next:  Buffalo Gourd
Same hike as yesterday except I went up the arroyo and returned the same way.  Photographed many similar things, too, though the Hummer photos don't compare to what I got yesterday.

Saw a woman who was hiking back on Geothermal when I was heading east at the start of my trek.  Her dog, Honey, who preceded her, greeted me and licked my fingers while I was walking away.

Much quieter out there this morning, no gunshots or loud off-road vehicles.


Probably a female Black-chinned Hummer
