wildlife camera in my yard
male. Photographed in hand and released to continue his patrols. We were looking for rarities such as Slender Clubskimmer, so we checked out a number of clubskimmers, but all were Pale-faced.
male. This species was fairly common in the area today.
female. I saw a male but only got a few quick shots of the female
migrant Chimney Swifts moving over very high in small numbers much of the day. Cruddy shot but best I could do at the great heights these birds were flying at.
missing its "tail"
Many scores of WW Doves in the area
shot taken directly at the sun, but should still be identifiable. Great Kiskadees vocalize constantly in this area.
fairly common along this creek
Gray Hawks have nested in this area for several years. This bird was repeatedly vocalizing as was a Red-shouldered Hawk, so we had a nice serenade of calling hawks along the creek.

Taken at dawn in low light conditions at 3200 ISO. Mule Deer does not occur in this area and the antler formation is diagnostic for White-tailed with the single beam from which all the tines extend upward. Mule deer have very different antlers.
