Woodpecker Breakfast

Here is my morning’s entertainment – a Ladderback Woodpecker feeding her big chick.  She is finding caterpillars on the mesquite to feed him.

Virden Update

It’s been a while since this guy built the nest just outside my front door.  Males build several and the female then chooses which one to occupy.  I figured she didn’t choose ours.  They build a pocket nest with a side opening.  But now there does seem to be another male feathering the nest and from a different entrance.   I’ll keep you posted.

Quiet Beach

Our local state park opened this week for day use only.  I was there, not quite first in line, but by 6AM.  I watched the sunrise and saw the empty beach – an unusual sight here in the summer.

Verdin

This verdin is building a nest close to my porch.  So, of course, I’ve taken lots of photos.  Mostly of empty branches after it’s flown away.  So here’s one I actually got of the bird!
