September is here and we are already seeing some migrating birds. A Nashville Warbler stopped by (just for a short visit) and luckily I was able to get a few photos before he flew off. On his way south to Mexico no doubt.
The zinnias are in full bloom and the Two-tailed Swallowtails love them! The Two-tailed is the largest butterfly in the western part of the United States. It is also the Arizona state butterfly.
The hummingbird feeders are active all day long! Not only do we have the Rufous (top) and the Black-chinned (bottom), there are also Anna’s and the Broad-tailed stopping by. August will be a busy month!
The sunflowers are blooming! And they are attracting a wide assortment of finches, hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. To me, sunflowers are the essence of summer and make every day a happy day.
