These are many of the birds we saw while in the Palm Springs urban region.  We saw more hummingbirds (that were too quick to photograph) and some other birds while we were out but weren't able to capture.  It's the movement and sounds of birds that help you detect their presence - love hearing the sound of Morning Doves!  We weren't intentionally seeking out birds and it was quite pleasant just to notice them as we visited different tourist spots.
