A few weeks ago we weren’t’ seeing our regular backyard birds we see in Baja. You know, the songsters that Chris has in his book, “Birds We See in Baja California Sur, Mexico“.
It is with great pleasure we welcome their return. But…where have they been? (we welcome your comments at the end of this post to let us know what you are and are not seeing…by comment please, not email.) I am always curious to know what others are seeing and where.
I wanted to share with you some photos that I took the other day. They were taken in our Llewellyn Baja bird sanctuary with the exception of the gallo (rooster). We were cruising and stopped and asked permission to shoot it. I held up my camera when I asked so they wouldn’t get the wrong impression! LOL
He was being pretty cocky as there were lots of hens around. Pun intended.
And the female Northern Cardinal. Isn’t she beautiful? I couldn’t resist shooting her, even tho we have soooo many photos of them already!
And I can’t EVER keep from shooting the Costa’s Hummingbird. And I have to admit…the males are definitely prettier than the females. Even tho this male was not showing his color. But…he did eventually and I got him pretty well…
Male Costa’s Hummingbird.
And of course, what would we do without our gorgeous male House Finch?
That’s if for our backyard Baja birds today! Hope you enjoy…
