Lazy Sunday, but busy bees

I didn’t do a lot today, though I did make it down to Canemah. At church, our new pastor commented that everywhere in the United States they say “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.” But, he said, “Here you live it!

The skies when we started into Canemah.

Yesterday I mentioned the bees and today I saw even more kinds.

I tried to identify them, and even found a good site: Bees of Oregon. But I’m not good enough to figure it all out.

Other things I can’t figure out are the myriad variety of little flowers that pop out along the trail.

The birds were making full use of a view minutes of nice weather. I saw a red tailed hawk chasing a pigeon and heard the result. Lots of sparrows were out. And on the home front, I saw a migrant Yellow Rumped Warbler on my back patio.
