While driving in Prescott Valley on Tuesday, I saw what I thought was a stray dog, as I got closer I realized it was not a dog, it was a coyote out hunting in town in daylight. Keep your cats in the house!
This is a baby Mockingbird on it's first day out of the nest. The parents were close by and making some noise to warn either me or the baby, but it stayed put and let me get a few pictures. It looks a little too young to be out in the world.
I counted sixteen helicopters flying over my house on Saturday. There were 7 flying together in the first group and they were loud. Then came 5 and about an hour or so later 4 more, all going in the same direction.
