Warm weather at last! It must be summer. Here are a few of the birds that breed in our hot summer valley. Some migrate long distances to take advantage of the warmth and abundant food to be found. Others are 'locals'. (Use the menu above or buttons at the bottom of each page. Most images can be enlarged by clicking on them.) I hope you enjoy your visit to my site. Please respect my copyright on the photographs.
The birds below, some of which were also here in winter, will be with us too throughout the summer months. They will mate, nest and raise their young, taking advantage of all the food including insects, which provide high protein to their chicks. Click on each image to enlarge and see captions.
