Went out to my favorite birding spot last weekend.  Here's a hummingbird.  Is it a Broad-tailed (this is in Flagstaff, Arizona)?

Here's a female Yellow-headed Blackbird.  I've seen a bunch of males (to be fair, they are quite distinctive), but this is my first time noticing one of the females.

I'd never seen one of these before.  It's a Sora, and it ran off into the reeds practically as soon as I took this picture.

These fledglings patiently perch fairly close together while the parents acrobatically swoop through the sky catching up bugs along the way. The young hear their parents calling on their return and when they come in close, each young'n makes noise and flutter up a storm, trying to attract the most attention.
