Early this morning I took a trip out to the Reservoir, mostly just to hang out, and see what I could find. There have been a large number of Xanthus's Hummingbirds, and I thought I might be able to get a few new photos of this rather uncommon endemic species. While there were certainly were a few Xanthus's around, there were a huge number of birds, and a few I have never seen in this area before.
I had not seen any of our local Gray Flycatchers since last winter, but got to see several today around the lake.
This is only the second time I have been able to locate Black-headed Grosbeaks.
This female Hooded Oriole made a trip down to the waters edge to get a drink as well.
And of course, there were some Xanthus's Hummingbirds.
