The day before my previous post we knew that we were in for a day of blowing dust. "Blowing dust," a term also used by the NOAA and a term NO ONE here looks forward to - that a day of blowing dust, as I don't have to imagine as we live through them - no one would. LOL But, it is/can be a more common occurrence here than some other places. We had a slight reprieve you could say and nothing was show or "blowing" for that matter. So I worked in the garden as shown in the previous post. It was a beautiful day overall - nice temps etc. And, "BD,"
It was just late! Yep - showed up while we were trying to sleep - - and lasted ALL night long. :( NOAA also reported that we were to have rain for the next two days (it only last morning :( ). The morning after the "BD," I rose to a calmer, quieter, over-cast, spring showery kind of day. It put a :) on my face! I was also "BLESSED" with watching humming birds and orioles. We have at least 2-3 different species of each, more on that later. Any who I was able to catch a few short clips on my cell phone of a couple female hummers. This is a first through a window. The weather was perfect for this - all the birds seemed to be enjoying the shower - we sure were.
I would like to apologize for different background noises you my hear it wasn't a planned thing. You can hear the hummers. :)
I couldn't decide on the videos I wanted to share so I uploaded those you see ~
Here is a really cool site I just found on Arizona: Beetles, Bugs, Birds and more . .
Also Birds found in Arizona here ~ I believe I have a possibility of three different Orioles; Scott's, Hooded and Bullock's.
