Snowy Rufus

We are on day two of lots of snow and it is snowing again. Every half hour I go and brush an 1/2 inch or so of snow off the hummer feeder. Seems to cold for them, I hope they are as tough as they are feisty.

Tree Swallows

Poor swallows, they were to late for a ready made house, they will have to keep looking.

Three days of rain

Doldrums, we are in the middle of rainy doldrums, and the sad part is we really need the rain, and yet I complain...
So I post a photo of the winter sun at Damen Point.

Great Horned Owls

We went out to see these two young owls Sunday, the weather was ok, certainly not light, mostly overcast. So the photo is dark but you can see that it is an owl. There are two actually, the other is behind the first. It was great to walk and chat, and get some photos for the future. Click to enlarge.

California Tortoiseshell

The first butterfly of the year for me! These hardy butterflies will produce one brood in the late spring/summer and they will live until the next spring to try to reproduce, then die. Can you see the notch out of one wing, its a hard life for a butterfly.

Turkey Vultures

I made the cover of the Turkey Vulture Society newsletter! well not me, just a photo I took. Click on them to see them full size. This is a photo of them over my house in the fall, during their migration south. Thanks to Diann MacRae for submitting my photo.

I would add the Turkey Vulture Society's web site here but they don't have it working yet.
