Some more random wetland and park bird fun.

Another fluffy yellow-rumped warbler.

The bushtits have started pairing up!

A pied-billed grebe.

Two ruddy ducks.

A great blue heron building a nest!

Short-billed dowitcher, (middle)? Wilson's snipe (left and right).

A mourning dove came for a visit.

This little female Rufous hummer was perched here right outside our window for around 45 minutes until flying to the feeders!

Do you have any idea what these flowers are?

A pretty tree.

One of the many mallards hanging out here.

Nice photo collection! I think your flower is a Hyacinth. Does it smell good? Usually they are very fragrant. Isn't it fun to see the Rufous no? They have been really fiesty in my garden. I think the Raptor Cam eggs are supposed to hatch next week. Watch and see!

Jeannette: The rufous hummers are so pretty!

Michele: I had to crop most of the pictures so most of them are blurry. We found out that the flower is a hyacinth. Thanks for letting me know :-) The Rufous come by every day now! They really like certain flowers. We have had several fights over our window feeder!

I can't wait until the Raptor cam eggs hatch!
