Giving me the eye!

It was beautiful in the desert this weekend - perfect for planting native trees. I do wish I had had a camera in hand rather than a mesquite tree when a Roadrunner came by to check out what was happening. Oh well... Later, I did get some nice shots of the usual desert birds at this time of year, such as this Phainopepla.
