This afternoon I returned to the Tecolote Canyon Visitor's Center and entered the garden to see if I could get better photographs of the Cedar Waxwing. Yesterday the Center was closed so the photos I took did not do the bird any justice. Hopefully, the collage shown above will provide a greater appreciation.
Yesterday, I did find a green and yellow bird. I researched it and believe it to be a Lesser Goldfinch (shown below). This was a bird that greeted me as soon as I arrived yesterday. Its brilliant yellow color was very uplifting to someone ready for blossoms on the trees.
I also found a bird in a large bush near the entrance, but could not see the whole bird. What I did find interesting was that it had a curled bill. I gave up on the bird, but found it or another bird just like it in on the side of the trail. It was a California Thrasher.
I noticed that I seemed to have company as I traveled up and down the trail. I find it difficult to identify hummingbirds, but always try to get a good photograph.
