This morning, between rain showers, I happened to look out the window and saw this interloper taking its leisure in the shade garden next to the patio.
Of course, She-Who-Rules-The-Yard took exception to the intruder and barked furiously and bravely, albeit from a distance. She continued to bark long after the hapless creature had ambled back to the woods until I wacked her with a broom because she was driving me .

I made a short trip to the desert Wednesday night. Winds were fierce during the night, with gust of 55 mph! On Thursday it was a little better but still too windy to fly my drone or do some of the other things I had planned. However, I still had a great time, and saw some amazing things. Best of all, I saw and photographed some interesting birds, including a hummingbird with two young in the nest.
Dawn in the desert:
Hummingbirds in nest...I think these are Costa's Hummingbirds:
I also saw this female Western Tanager:
And this male Wilson's warbler:
Just before I left, I spotted the nest of a Red Tail Hawk, and got this photo of a chick in the nest:

Come on Jerry, besides the alligators, snakes and coyotes we have normal critters too. We have hawks, buzzards and armadillos. A little howling at the moon would do you some good.
Rich you and Jerry, well at least Jerry should stay inside so he’d get some work done.
Ted this is the southeast variant. Everyone I’ve seen around here is that whitish color.
Here's some of our more common wildlife, peacocks and peahens. I saw these on my way to pick up pizza the other day.

This isn't something you see everyday. A coyote swimming in a pond chasing ducks. Unfortunately he was at a distinct disadvantage, the ducks could fly away.
A deflated ego, wet and cold he trots off.

I don't get it. They look harmless. Why were we fighting them in Syria?

After last night's and today's heavy rains the pond is way up and the Ibis are taking advantage of the little critters flooded homes.
The dark ones are juveniles.
