I saw lots of birds today–mockingbirds of course, a family of cardinals, a hummingbird visiting the basil flowers, mourning doves, and more. I only got photos of two of them. The first was this Cooper’s Hawk sitting in the rain.


Looking back over its shoulder here. I don’t see Cooper’s hawks often, but they do live in our area and every once in awhile I’ll spot one.


One more of the hawk.


This is a juvenile bluebird, mostly softly colored at this point. You can see a bit of bluebird blue developing on the wings.


This little bird was sitting on a wire, watching the ground for bugs.


One more of the young bluebird.
