I had to water my trees, then go to Alpine. I carried my camera around all morning until I was ready to leave. Then I put it in the car. For some reason I walked back by the water feature and there right beside the path at eye level in the big Chinese Pistachio tree was a Worm-eating Warbler. I got a good but quick look with my naked eye before I ran for my camera. Of course, I never saw it again. It's not a new bird for the oasis, but I really want to get a decent photo of that species.
We're down to 3 baby ducks at our ponds in Alpine. And they do not stay close to the mother duck.
I found this stowaway moth in my pickup on the way to Alpine today. Anyone know what kind it is?
I did eventually get a slightly better photo of the Warbling Vireo today.
