Superbowl Wildlife

Sunday was, of course, the Superbowl. Rose and John hosted a party that was a lot of fun.  There were significant amounts of food available for hours of noshing.  I had to force myself to move away from the popcorn and the chips.  Rose and John bought a really cool house last year.  Their backyard is excellent for the viewing of birds.

These are Goldfinches.

I believe this is a Costa's Hummingbird.  It was an overcast day, so there wasn't enough sun to make his iridescence light up.

This is his tree, where he likes to sit.  I could not get a decent picture of him.  Tiny cameras don't have view finders anymore, and without wearing my reading glasses, I can't tell what the camera is focusing on.  I generally just point in the general direction of the subject, take a lot of photos and hope one is good.

This is purloined from the internet.

A rabbit down by the wash.

There was a pretty good sunset, as well.

It was fun and surprising.  When we lived in Seattle, the Seahawks were a terrible team.  To see them win the Superbowl was just surreal.
