Hummingbird Season

— SjG @ 2:10 pm

It’s Springtime in the Quagg Garden, and several hummingbirds have declared it their own exclusive territory. When I take my lunch, I am greeted by spectacular aerial displays: both mating rituals and territorial defense. Less dramatic and yet equally (sonically) expressive, the mocking birds seem to be nesting nearby. Plenty of finches and bushtits and crows come by too.

We have a new resident, though he’ll probably move on along soon enough.

This monarch caterpillar takes advantage of the hot weather to make a late-November start.
