All the birds are taking advantage of bird baths and sprinklers in this dry  
heat. Yesterday I looked out to see an accipiter standing in the bird  bath 
out back. Of course it had the pool all to it's self. Not another bird in  
sight, although a brave hummer harassed it after it flew to a perch. Immature  
Sharp-shinned Hawk, I believe, judging by head size, eye placement and color of 
breast and belly streaks. And my first impression of size was sharp-shinned, 
but  that's harder to judge up close. See some fuzzy photos ( thru windows )
