Also got a photo of a White-throated Sparrow. I seldom get that species here, so this is my first photo of one.
And here is the big bad Northern Mockingbird that bedevils the thrush.
Found a Checkered-Skipper butterfly that my friend, Brian Banker, confirmed is a Desert Checkered-Skipper. In looking through records to see if I've recorded it here before, I can't find it listed, but I think it has been here before. At any rate, it's documented here now.
Below is a Christmasy looking bush, Fragrant Mimosa loaded with red seedpods.
