Don sent me some more photos from Nipomo, CA. This Long-tailed Weasel has a distinctive white spot in the middle of its forehead. I remember being with Maggie when we saw an identical looking weasel near the town of Greer in Arizona. I was not fast enough on the trigger to get a photo. It was gone in an instant.
BTW I am putting the finishing touches on a Short-tailed Weasel painting right now.
This one managed to snag one of the local birds. I think it may be a young robin. Weasels are cute but deadly predators.
An immature White-crowned Sparrow in great light that shows off its warm colors.
The less colorful adult White-crowned Sparrow.
A plethora of Anna's Hummingbirds.
That many hummingbirds can suck up a lot of sugar water.
Scrub Jays always make an impression with their loud voice, if not with their bright colors.
A nice close-up of a Northern Mockingbird. They can sing the day and night away borrowing the songs of many kinds of other birds.
I love this photo of a White-tailed Kite soaring past the moon.
