February 8th – 3 days late

Sunday and Monday were okay – not hot and sunny but livable – the rest of the week was a lost cause rain and cold…… nasty stuff again.

On Sunday I went to the Butterfly centre, Monday to the Santa Ana Refuge. On Thursday I went to a municipal park and found some wild domesticated geese.

Sunday the 9 and Monday the 10 were great but today the 11th is wet aand cold but more on that next week.

The hawks seem to be returning to the area – this is a Harris Hawk. I also saw 3 in one tree so that was super.

I saw the two javelins in Santa Ana – a first for this year and they posed for me for awhile until I moved too close in their view.
