The Sun Came Out

With over an inch of rain yesterday, birding shut down and we were pretty much holed up for the day in the motor home.  But today the sun came out, just like Annie always sang so well, and with it came the birders and the birds.  I had a record number of eight people show up for the guided bird hike, and we identified 27 different species. Some of the outstanding birds were: a pair of Ladder-backed Woodpeckers, Orange-crowned Warblers and Ruby-crowned Kinglets that both flashed their crowns, a Costa’s Hummingbird male that displayed his gorgeous purple coloring, and an American Kestrel which was a first for me in this county.
