Scrambled for cover in the side yard / hummingbird garden and area where one was seen up in the tomato plants months ago. this was the only picture I was able to get of him. The warm weather has them moving very fast and he ran with his whole body and tail swerving from side to side.

Several loud males where heard calling, although I only managed to snap one in a photograph. Chocolate brown, large adult male pictured.
First appearance in our yard this year.
First saw the chick yesterday, 3.18.15. Female sits on the nest for about 5- 6 minutes, then leaves for about 5 minutes. When she returns, she lands near the nest, surveys for about a minute then resumes her seat. She appears to feed the chick about every other time she returns.
