"One of the feistiest hummingbird in North America. The brilliant orange male and the green-and-orange female Rufous Hummingbird are relentless attackers at flowers and feeders, going after (if not always defeating) even the large hummingbirds of the Southwest, which can be double their weight. Rufous Hummingbirds are wide-ranging, and breed farther north than any other hummingbird. Look for them in spring in California, summer in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, and fall in the Rocky Mountains as they make their annual circuit of the West." - Cornell University Lab of Ornithology

Black-tailed Jackrabbit- Lepus californicus

Several Black-tailed Jackrabbits live around my house, but it is very easy to recognize this guy. I wish I could ask him in for a coffee and hear his battle stories.

"In western North America, the sweet song of the Black-headed Grosbeak caroling down from the treetops sounds like a tipsy robin welcoming spring. The flashy black, white, and cinnamon males and the less flamboyant females sing from perches in suburbs, desert thickets, and mountain forests. At feeders they effortlessly shuck sunflower seeds with their heavy bills. The showy male puts in equal time on the domestic front: both sexes sit on the eggs, feed the young, and feistily defend their nesting territory."

I was sitting in my blind impatiently waiting for the sun to rise. A raised piece of soil caught my eye. I asked myself "Was it like that a minute ago??" Over the next few minutes the bulge grew until this cute little one popped its head out. I couldn't help thinking of the movie Caddy Shack...
