Good morning to all my readers.
What a day DesertDale and Kitfoxgal had, just setting out enjoy the desert sites.
A "Tarantula Hawks" has a very shiny blue-black body. With their wings a bright red or orange.
They are found in open areas.
DesertDale and Kitfoxgal kept track of the "wasp" doing it's job of surviving out in the harsh desert.
The next site was of this "Red-tailed Hawk" as he flew over head.
They winter in the NW. They are seen year round.
Their home is in grassland, woodlands, scrump and around farms. They are more common around April to Sept. in Nevada and Utah areas.
They are the most common hawk around.
They are one mighty pretty bird to see flying over head.
(Thank goggle for this photo.)
It is the "lader-backed woodpecker". It is found in woodlands in Nevada, Utah Arizona and New Mexico.
Like I said what a joy it is to set back an watch nature.
The wind is blowing and I mean blowing. So we will hang out here at our Searchlight one more day.
Enjoy the time you have with your partner. Oh! What fun you can have.
