We had new visitors to the bird feeders this afternoon! As soon as I moved to grab the camera they were gone. About the size of a mocking bird but bright yellow chest and brown punk rock hairdo. I'm thinking great crested flycatcher but I've never seen one before.

We just put out new food, nuts raisins and mealworms but they were actually on the post for the hummingbird feeders. I'm hoping they come back. Cool looking birds.

Red Breasted Grosbeak?
We're seeing them right now, as they migrate through on their way to the high country for nesting.

So many visitors lately!!
The Nessies are a daily visitor. (Awww...... Cuddle Noodles!)

We saw our first George (ie - garter snake) today when my husband pulled back a tarp covering a pile of dirt:

We saw our first Shelly (more likely, it was a Sheldon...)

A tiny, baby grasshopper:

And, of course, we are over run with frogs! I'm just getting them all trained up to pose nicely by the flowers... :LOL:

Nessie dives into the pond every time I wander down there, well not every time. But quite often.

I saw a very rare sight in the garden area at the homedepot. It was amazing looking through the flowers I saw it! One of the most frightening sights I ever saw. An entire family was maskless. GASP..... Bunch of heartless Vipers.

Mine are bold little beasties. They do keep a close eye on us when we walk near where they are basking, but unless you practically step on or touch them, they don't move.
