Neighbors

After chores today, I went for a short walk around Cotati.  It was nice visiting with some of our neighbors (see below):



Western Tiger Swallowtails (Papilio rufutus) perhaps a male following a female?




An accipiter (Cooper's Hawk?) calling and landing in a tall pine.




A Brown Creeper (Certhia americana) bringing food into a nest!  (The nest is underneath the peeling eucalyptus bark.)

What a great neighborhood, with such good neighbors!

Hi, Alice!

Yes, I'm always grateful whenever I go for a walk, even a short one.

I tried to get an audio recording of the creepers. If it worked out, I'll post some call notes soon.
