Occasionally the Townsend's takes delicate sips of water from the bird bath. I was trimming a plant near the birdbath today when he came in for a sip, nearly close enough to touch; he lingered on the edge for a few moments, and of course I did not have a camera. Taking a decent photo of the little darling is difficult, as this colorful little warbler is never at one location for more than a second.
From tiny birds to much larger birds - A few days ago, on a very cold morning was able to get a photo of Turkey Vultures warming up before flight. Unlike the fast moving Warbler, these guys were nearly stationary. A photo op. I could not pass up. A friend of mine whose living room window looks out at this old tree, called to let me know about the vultures.
