Say’s Phoebe

This is one species that isn’t particularly hard to come by out west, but I have had some difficulty getting images for the last few years. Finally, I was able to find a cooperative individual in Palm Springs, CA.

Feeling lazy, like a lizard on a rock

Perhaps if I had a little more ambition today, I’d try to identify this beautiful little lizard.

Variegated Meadowhawk

This Variegated Meadowhawk was found in a canyon on the outskirts of Palm Springs last December. I am anxiously awaiting dragon season here in Massachusetts.

Adolescent Costa’s Hummingbirds

Here are a couple of young Costa’s Hummingbirds that I hung out with for a while with in Palm Springs. They seemed to be watching out for each other. The female was chill, but the male was quite feisty.

Brewer’s Sparrow

I was pleased to find this Brewer’s Sparrow in a mixed flock of sparrows in Palm Springs at the end of December 2017. Since I have not seen one in a long time, it was a definite case of shoot first and ask questions later.

Variegated Meadowhawk

As I mentioned Sunday afternoon, I am way behind on my photos. Here a Variegated Meadowhawk that I found in the Palm Springs, California desert.

Sunday, March 4, 2018


I am back in Massachusetts after having to abruptly leave town for three weeks. This leaves me with an abundance of backlog of material to post.

It was apparent on Thursday night that we were going to be in for some weather. Flying up the eastern seaboard, just as we were over New Jersey, we started hitting turbulence. By Friday, the winds started to pick up in Ipswich, out of the north east. That combined with an astronomical high tide, we had the third highest tides recorded in Massachusetts. At 8:00pm Friday night the lights went out only to return at 4:15 on Saturday, just before I had to head down to Boston.

But that has nothing to do with this. Here is a female Costa’s Hummingbird coming in on a Chuparosa bush.
