Western Screech Owls have taken over the courtyard. We have one year round resident but he/she appears to have found a mate and now there are three offspring. Purple Martins are nesting in the big saguaro next to the driveway.
These birds showed up today. Rare in the winter and the first time for us to see them. Quite noisy, there were about 25 of them.
