I had to water trees so didn't get hardly any birding done, but will have birders here all day tomorrow so we should find some good stuff. I found a White-throated Sparrow but could not manage a photo until it plopped into the water and got all wet. I don't like photos of wet birds. But ebird flagged the sighting so I had to take what I could get. I'm hoping to see it again tomorrow. I had one overwinter here either last year or the year before.
Lots of butterflies, but nothing new or interesting. I like hairstreaks though. Here's a Gray Hairstreak. Hoping for other hairstreaks soon.
The acacias are now ready for warblers, but I didn't see a one today. Surely tomorrow.
