The last group of banders got 5 species (Calliope, Black-chinned, Ruby-throated, Lucifer, and Rufous) at CMO this morning. Here's bander Fred Bassett admiring a male Lucifer's gorget.
I finally got a distant shot of that elusive Belted Kingfisher. Not bad considering how far away she was.
This snake scooted across the path while I was watering. Startled me. A herpetologist said it's a baby Western Coachwhip. O..K.. That's a hole below its head. It briefly stuck its head in the hole. Maybe sniffing for food. Don't know.
