Gambols Quail - Prescott, Az.
It was fun observing Mr. Dad giving 'flying lessons' to his brood. He would gather them on one boulder, fly off to the next boulder and wait for each one to fly over to him. Mom was a few feet behind with the rest of brood. Wish I had more images to share but I didn't want to scare them off :)

Bullocks Oriole (m) - Willow Lake - Prescott, Az.
Finally, I was there at the right time-right place! Of all the times I have been at Willow Lake, this the first time I have ever viewed and photographed this beautiful bird common to our area during the summer months. Guess I'll have to make more trips to the lake and see what else I can find :)

This Hawks pretty wingspan in the morning sunshine caught my eye off the back deck.Our area has a lot of Quail and Dove so he/she was most likely hunting the next meal.Identifying Hawks has always been difficult for me as they change so much from juvenile to adult during their first years. I have labeled this as a Sharp-shinned Hawk as the size of this hawk appeared to be smaller than a Cooper's.
As always, I appreciate the birding expertise and comments from my friends :)
