Following are just a few pictures of birds we have been able to take while in our yard or area. We also enjoy mockingbirds, woodpeckers, and thrashers and a mystery bird of bright colors that visits once in awhile that we have yet to identify.
This little hummingbird was on our porch one stormy night, and he would not leave. So we kept him overnight in our butterfly habitat until morning when we released him. He stayed in my daughter's hands for awhile before taking off.
Ok, we live in the California desert, but we took this photo of a roadrunner while driving through Arizona. However, roadrunners are common or were common in our community, though I am sure their numbers have dropped since our population growth.
