I've been away from Tucson long enough now to appreciate the spectacular beauty in that first photo. :) Blessings!

Diane, I don't believe all the birds you're seeing! Thank you for this bit of desert warmth. It's bitter cold here.

The roadrunner is just wonderful.

Oh did I see a winter fire?

Thérèse said...

To answer your question Diane just a second storey apartment in downtown Toulouse.

Up until yesterday, our skies were as blue as yours. Glad to see the bunnies are still out and about.

Pretty. I've never seen a Black-throated Sparrow or a Western Bluebird, sure would like to.

I am loving winter so far and your birds are wonderful. Especially that Black-chinned Hummingbird!

Hello,

Beautiful photos. I have not seen many of these birds. It is an education for me. Every photo is a visual delight.

Best wishes

Wonderful photos Diane. You have some amazing birds and the scenery is magnificent

Marcie said...

I love how blue your skies are! I miss that color!

Is the desert blooming yet? The family that I nanny for is vacation in Phoenix right now and viewed the desert from a hot air balloon. That sounds beautiful, doesn't it?

Diane AZ said...

Hi Marcie, I imagine a balloon ride over the desert would be amazing this of year, some flowers, especially yellow ones are blooming!
