More Western Tanagers jarring the bosque and The Lane with their tropically beautiful plumage and patterns. Other Say’s Phoebes are arriving, too, and will probably stay through to the Summer breeding season of 2017.

A Gray Hawk is “makin’ lazy circles in the sky” (well, “Oklahoma” was filmed not very far away after all) in #3 Pasture high above my head in that Red-tail way, which behavior I’ve never seen with this bird before. The Camphor Plants below it scattered through the grass have a first flower or two open.
