During an early lunch walk in the Bear Creek Greenbelt, I saw Yellow Warblers, Gray Catbirds, Black-capped Chickadees, Red-tailed Hawks (mama and one of the juveniles), and this Western Painted Turtle (in the pond north of Bear Creek):

I saw a dragontail I’d never seen befoe:

And more familiar flying things:

Cabbage Whites

Then I met up with a couple of fellow birders/photographers.  I pointed out this Cooper’s Hawk:

They led me to a Broad-tailed Hummingbird’s nest:
