Two Phoebes - Wings On Wednesday

Although they are common to this area, it was last week that I actually saw my first Black Phoebe. At first glance I thought it was a blackbird and then saw the white belly:)  

                                                          Black Phoebe - Prescott, Az.

     Below, a  Say's Phoebe carried a tasty morsel along with him or her on top of a roof.
    I see these Phoebe's quite frequently in our area and its fun to watch them twist and turn to catch insects in mid air.

Clash of the Titans

Its always enjoyable to watch Hummingbirds defend their territory and more fun to get an image of very close encounters.  I believe the Hummingbird on the left is an Anna's and not sure of the one on the right, perhaps a female Broadtail?

A Pair of Roadrunners for Wed.Wings

 I have seen a LOT of Roadrunners - usually out hunting alone. Here are a pair of Greater American Roadrunners hunting together up on a bluff.  The blue and red markings are visible on one, which my field books tell me it is a mature adult.  I'm hoping the other is a young female and they are an 'official' couple :)
