BOBCAT! We almost bumped into each other - he was so well camouflaged, and I was walking in a part of the orchard where no one ever walks, so he could never expect to meet up with a human or other such critter most likely.
I had been working my way towards this little back area, where farmland ends and a small isolated woodland exists...here there were some lesser goldfinches eating wild thistle seeds as well as other grass seeds...
After that, this small bushtit flock flew with me as I walked back to the house, just coincidentally.
Below, this bushtit looks like it is using one of its feet like a hand, to hold a seed pod. Not sure how this bird is actually supporting itself in this photo except for hanging from the seed pod or poison oak berry by one leg.
