Earlier in the day, I birdied the usual Sweet Springs (above). In the thickets of brush, digging thru leaf litter, were Junco, Song Sparrow, and White and Golden-crowned Sparrow. The Golden-crowned Sparrow is a rather feisty feeder. If another Golden-crowned gets too close, the interloper gets a quick peck on the butt.
In the Eucalyptus trees, vivid black and yellow Townsend’s Warbler, Northern Flicker, pert Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and a sweet little Downey Woodpecker. Belted Kingfisher was perched on a branch overlooking the pond.
