Getting up in the hills takes you to another bird habitat, which means different species. This evening we were treated with a Chipping Sparrow perched on top of some bitter brush just singing away (kind of buzzing actually). We saw lots of Meadow Larks, Horned Larks, and even a few Lark Sparrows. All three have the name Lark, but they are very different birds. Here are some pictures so you can tell the difference:
Gray Catbird Update: I observed three separate Gray Catbirds this morning along Spring Valley Creek. Pretty cool that I've been able to see a new life bird so frequently in the last week.
