It must be spring in southern California. Butterflies and lizards are out sunning themselves, birds are singing to establish territories and seek mates, and everyone is busy finding food after our dry winter. I too have been busy with a new marriage and new home, but thought you might enjoy seeing some of these neighborhood birds. Thanks for looking! Trude

1. Red-tailed Hawk with prey at nearby El Toro Marine Base






2. Western Fence Lizard display in back yard






3. Nuttall’s Woodpecker finding tasty morsels under aging bark of back yard peach tree.






4. Painted Lady butterfly at Tree of Life Nursery where I have been buying California native plants for the back yard

Great to see you Trude!! Been too long
Lovely set beginning with a sweet flyby and the prey adds!
Great color and detail for the Lizard and how cool to have these guys hanging around
Nice compo for the Woodpecker Trude and the leftovers on the beak tell the tale.
Last frame is a stunner and takes favorite in series for me, pin sharp and what beautiful color Love the angle on this too

Hey, Tom, Birdie, and Tim, thanks for your kind comments. That lizard was on some bricks angled up to a back wall where another lizard was. He definately was winning the contest of BLUE! I heard another Nuttall's woodpecker so am hoping for a pair. That butterfly let me get a side view but this angle was more exciting.

We got married at Crystal Cove State Beach. It is one of the few times we rented the historical cottages that we DIDN'T take ten gazillion bird photos, ha ha!

Nice set, Trude.

Seeing the Painted Lady reminded me to get my camera out of the mothballs and head down to the San Diego Safari Park for their annual Butterfly Garden Show.

Glad to see you are back posting
