Coming down from Alpine in the pre-dawn was so lovely, I kept stopping to take photos. The Christmas Mountains appeared haloed with a pretty pinkness.
Lots of birds and butterflies today but no unusual species. I saw my FOS (first of season) Ash-throated Flycatcher, but have not seen or heard an Elf Owl yet.
I was distressed to see a female Lucifer Hummingbird with her foot tangled in something. I try be be careful with string and stuff like that. Don't know what it is exactly. Hope she gets it off.
Driving from the house to the habitat late this afternoon, I saw an American Kestrel with a mouse. Just in case it flew when I opened the car door, I took a photo through the windshield. OK, through the dirty windshield. Good thing too, because he disappeared as soon as I opened the door. So I'm left with only this really poor image.
