So we got hit pretty hard with some wicked winds and weather this weekend. In spite of those conditions, plenty of wildlife was out and about. Click on any of the pictures for a better view.

I've read that we have some year-round hummingbird residents and have seen them on occasion. This little one visited the feeder (which I had recently freshly replenished) quite a few times that day.

As I headed out to do errands before the worst of the storm hit, I looked up and saw the two resident bald eagles fly overhead and land in some trees (picture below). From their direction then I saw a huge red-tailed hawk fly toward me and away from the eagles.

And while I was out, I happened upon this perimeter patrol at the local reservoir.

So with all this crazy winter weather out there,
I'd like to leave you with the words of Sergeant Phil Esterhaus:
"Hey, let's be careful out there."


  1. I love the wildlife you shared. Great photos. That's a huge hummingbird...or at least it seems like it in the photo (to me, anyway:)) Be careful in all that bad weather! Jan

  2. Thanks Jan! With this nasty weather, I'm staying inside (mostly) and catching up on reading blogs :)


I love comments, and visiting blogs of people who leave them! Thanks for visiting!
