Summer doldrums

Waiting for rain, but at least I have plenty of water for now (as long as we get at least one good monsoonal rain this summer yet). It got over 100° here today.

I was delighted to see that the nest of Blue Grosbeaks in the courtyard still contains 3 healthy nestlings. They're about 4 days old now. I couldn't get a good photo because the nest is so hidden in a guayacan bush. That white looking stuff is some fibrous plant that she lined or decorated the nest with. Probably from a sotol stalk. It would be awesome to watch her carrying one of those large pieces she used.
