It was quite warm and humid today, and unfortunately there were fewer birds to be seen. Last week I recorded almost 40 species and this morning only a little over 20. Despite that it was still good to be out and about.
A Squacco Heron waiting for breakfast to come within range
As usual there were several small parties of Indian Silverbills
The big numbers of Pipits and Wagtails have departed but there were about a dozen Red-throated Pipits to be seen
I found a single Tree Pipit in the shade of a tree that had dropped a lot of fruit
Small numbers of Yellow Wagtails were also present.
These birds look like they are of the blue-headed race
Here a Common Sandpiper has found a nice juicy Caterpillar
I came across what looks like a leucistic Eurasian Collared Dove. An unusual and rather rare sighting.
I think these are the blooms of a Saguaro Cactus. Please correct me if I am wrong
