|Nesting Broad-billed Hummingbird in our garden at El Presidio|
A break from madness. Balance. Serenity. No worries for tomorrow. No worries about the stresses of today. It's about just existing and being a part of our natural world. It provides a clarity of mind during my daily meditation.

Everything takes time and practice to get right. Sometimes it's better when we do nothing. An injured bird is one thing. But baby birds learning to fly? Well it can be quite humorous:) There is always one clutz in the group.

And once and awhile a lovely rare migrant makes its way through the state to make for an exciting chase.

For now, it's best I leave this male Vermilion Flycatcher to feed his young family.
Next week, the Wrenegades unite for the biggest day ever in Tucson Audubon's fundraising event! What will we find? Stay tuned. You're not going to want to miss this one! Especially if you're planning on visiting us this summer:) Until next time......
