Happy Sabbath!
This is an appropriately named Rock Wren, which is most often found amongst rocks. Who is your rock? King David wrote: “Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.” – Psalm 71:3

Cassin’s Kingbird

Cassin’s Kingbird

Kingbirds are surprisingly difficult to shoot. They don’t come to feeders, and they’re unpredictable, which is why I was pleased to have finally captured a decent image of one. This is a Cassin’s Kingbird.

“Do not curse the king, even in your thought; do not curse the rich, even in your bedroom; for a bird of the air may carry your voice, and a bird in flight may tell the matter.” – Ecclesiastes 10:20

“Then the lame shall leap like a deer,
And the tongue of the dumb sing.

And streams in the desert.” – Isaiah 35:6

California Towhee

California Towhee

Although not a particularly notable bird (it’s actually very common), this image required roughly 10 hours of waiting. Since they’re mostly ground feeders, getting them up off the ground for a more attractive picture can be challenging, especially since California is rather dry with very little greenery.
