Hey out there.  As you can see above, I was a bit wishy-washy on the ID of these birds.  Well, the eBird reviewer contacted me to let me know these are, in fact, Cinnamon Teal.

A couple of faves from the last couple of days...

Rufous Hummingbird ~ It's been here 4 days now, which is a record.  They are rare here, but I usually see them during migration.  They have only ever stayed 2 or 3 days, though.

Tiger Swallowtail ~ In my garden.

This Acorn Weevil was going to give me nightmares, until I was able to ID it as something other than "Nightmare Bug that looks like a cross between an Ewok, a mutant cricket, and Xenomorph".
