The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese....

In the case of the yurt, the second mouse gets the peanut butter! That is more of an inside joke that only my fellow yurt dwellers may get...

Anyways, on to photos! I have been taking a bunch of bird photos lately. There are so many great things about birds, but as most know my favorite animal is the tiny hummingbird, no specific species. In Big Creek we have resident Anna's hummingbirds (Calypte anna) that visit the feeders and even visit while I am taking a shower. This female was up at Whale Point.

And then this juvenile male Anna's on my way up the trail to Whale Point.
This is a female Northern harrier (Circus cyaneus) at Long Marine Lab in Santa Cruz. She was flying around along with two white-tailed kites (Elanus leucurus) but I have only edited this photo so far...

Like always, I am behind in the editing part of photograpy, but since I have time to upload photos today, I thought I would add these three for viewing.
