Anyway, thought I would round out my week here in LaPosa South with some miscellaneous photos from this location. I usually take a walk around in the mornings and late afternoons when it's cooler...AND...it's ALWAYS the best light for photographing! It's amazing how much there is to see within a relatively short distance. Hold on to your hats! A LOT of photos here, but very little talking! LOL! (Remember...click to enlarge)
(All indigenous to this area)
Wied's Crested Flycatcher....
both male and female like my side view mirror perch at sunrise...on different days!
This desert variety of hummingbird nests in the same tree or bush year after year (known as philopatry). It will return to the same branch and even build a new nest atop an old one!
One of two nests I found in a grove of mesquite trees of the Black-tailed Gnatcatcher.... too small and too fast to get a photo of them :-(
(all that's missing is the water!)
Okay....that wraps up this week's excursions around LaPosa South. We'll see if LaPosa West has anything different to report on next week! Enjoy your weekend!
Bye for now!
Wonderful, wonderful!! Love all of these!!ReplyDelete
Did you use bird book??
Love the bird photos - and the other fabulous views. Read both blogs and feel more caught up now. I am so glad you are basically "there" even though you may not be exactly sure where there is yet. Glad you are safe and sound.ReplyDelete
