There has a been a small hawk hanging around for awhile - this morning he got especially close to the house so I was able to get some nice photos of him while he was perched on a bush outside Tom's office.
Then the roadrunner showed up while we were having lunch yesterday. Haven't seen him for several months.
And of course there are always finches and sparrows around eating from our feeders.
We usually have a couple of hummingbirds that winter over (this year I've had to melt their sugar water many mornings, as we've had particularly cold nights this winter). This guy, however, is a new one - I think he's an Allen's hummingbird and from the information from my birdbook, they are the earliest species to migrate.
Another shot of the hawk - we have red-tailed and red-shouldered hawks around here, but he doesn't really look like them, and is smaller. He could be an immature hawk, though. Or maybe a Cooper's? If anyone out there can identify him/her, let me know.
