Tree Identification, Acacia or Mimosa..

I found a tree that piqued my interest as a nectar source (it was covered in bees) and have been trying to identify it. I think it is either a mimosa or an acacia. It has tighter flowers than a mimosa more like an acacia like some of the cats claw and guajillo in west texas. Check out the pictures. Thanks

I have found what I was looking for.. Leucaena leucocephala

Apiculture: L. leucocephala is in bloom almost throughout the year, providing constant forage to honey bees.
