You’ve already met the cat that stalks them or dreams of stalk­ing them, so now it’s time to give some atten­tion to the birds that hang around my neigh­bor­hood. Main­ly, it was just real­ly nice on my ter­race the oth­er evening, so I decid­ed to hang out there for a while and take some pics.

There are a lot of hum­ming­birds in town, but not so many right around my place. Instead, there is just a fair­ly stan­dard col­lec­tion of finch­es, grack­les, doves, and lit­tle brown jobs. Oh well, just anoth­er week and a half until the Yucatan, hop­ing that this one lit­tle hur­ri­cane is enough for now down there.
