Nicely above 80 degrees this afternoon, and that brought out the Zebra-tailed Lizards that so love¬†the dryness and heat of the desert¬†edges, with sand too hot to stand on so they move as if in flight over it, tails a waggin’ and twitchin’ and frothin’ back and forth. The Marsh Wrens are still here, I thought they’d have left on yesterday’s 20 mph hot winds; there are a few Meadowlarks who didn’t get pushed out by those winds, either.

Many Barn Swallows, of a sudden flying and twittering over the pastures.
