Two plus weeks ago I posted this picture of the California Towhee nest and eggs,
well they hatched about a week or so ago. Here they are now and you can see the fluff being replaced with the beginnings of feathers. The amazing thing is throughout the process of having a new roof put on the house a week ago, this never deterred the mother to abandon her chicks during all the noise and mayhem. Her nest is in a bush against the house under the eave of the roof.
I am done with pictures from our recent trip to the desert in search of wildflowers. This is the last picture taken, my little buddy waiting for me to lead him back around the bush.
