Backyard Birdwatching

Staying at home during COVID-19 lock-down, I've been doing a lot of backyard bird-watching.  Keep in mind that I live in central Arizona, where we have birds all year long.  I know some of you have not yet been reacquainted with your birds.  If this is the case, I hope they arrive soon.  As for me, here are a few of my favorite shots from the last couple of weeks:

Gila woodpecker:

Same bird?  Different day:

Hummingbird (Anna's hummingbird, I believe):  

Another Anna's hummingbird, I think (the bib looks purple here, like a Costa's, but it looked more pink in real life):

Okay, not a bird:

Okay, not in the backyard, but along the canal near my house:

Four of the eleven ducklings:

If you're staying home and not working during lock-down, I advise using some of that time to watch birds (or whatever nature is available to you at the moment).  If you're out there working hard to keep things afloat, thank you so much.  But I still advise taking some time to watch birds...or snowflakes...or trees.
