I went out early this morning to check the status of the Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher nest I observed last weekend. About time I arrived clouds came in the photos were not the best. I decided to go back later this afternoon when I thought the sun would be in good position.
A car stopped by while I was photographing the nest and asked had I seen the Horned Lark that was supposed to be in the area. After finishing photographing the nest, I took off walking up the road. To my delight as I reached the top of the road, it came flying right out.
