I think this one is a mockingbird. I could be wrong, but it looks like a mockingbird to me.
I wandered over to the false rosemary area to see what the bees were up to. These bees are farther from our house, and don't know me, so they shy away from me. I'll have to hang around the rosemary so they'll get used to me.
This gorgeous little thing was hard to photograph. It's a tiny green bee with a metallic sheen.
A turtle was enjoying the creek at high tide. It doesn't go with the bird and bee theme, but I just wanted to add this picture.
