Below are some of the most common birds I see, but all worthy of attention and each is beautiful.
|California Quail (male) under my feeder|
|European Starling - showing the yellow breeding bill. Non-breeding Starlings have dark bills. Love 'em or hate 'em, you cannot deny the beauty of their iridescent plumage.|
|Speaking of iridescence, check out this Black-billed Magpie showing off its blues. And then I caught it hoping up to the burned out log showing off its impressive color pattern of white, blue, and black.|
|Keeping with the theme of iridescence, check out that Mallard head!|
|We saw this Canada Goose swimming over a hundred yards this way...kind of like it was hiding or like it was sneaking up on something? Why was it doing that?|
