Ravens Quail and Hummingbirds

With triple digit weather expected today, I had planned to fill all the hummingbird feeders and get them back out there. I was standing at the sink and a tiny hummingbird made eye contact with me as if to say, "Mom, it's hot out here. Please get your act together." So I'm waiting for the solution to cool now.

Two ravens were taking a bath in the water buckets. I grabbed my camera only to find the batteries dead. So I got up from my desk to get my boyfriend's camera but I guess my movements scared them away. Pooh.

Now there are quail hopping around the yard. There is a family of juvenile quail and their dad. Don't know what happened to the mom. I never see her anymore.
