I live in a fairly large city in the middle of a desert. A person might think there wouldn’t be many animals around, right?
I hear owls, coyotes, coy-wolves, mockingbirds, grackles. I see hummingbirds, hawks, pigeons, falcons, doves, quail, lizards of several kinds, butterflies, rabbits, and many other things.
Here are pictures of some of them. Apologies if the quality is poor but many of these are done at extreme zoom using a Nikon Coolpix 8300. A fun camera but without many of the fancy features other cameras have!
