A couple of red-shouldered hawks seem to be scuffling over the rights to the back orchard and area near the house, definitely prime small bird area.
This might be the "victor," since s/he is making a much more visible presence known.
When the hawk was on the utility pole, it had been directly above the bluebird nest tree.
On earlier morning walk, saw this Bewick's wren in hedges bordering lower orchard. Very shy bird, it quickly retreated into deeper brush when I approached.
This is the lower orchard red-tail, watching me traverse the open area towards the eucalyptus trees where they might have a nest.
Front porch Anna's hummer, perched battle ready near the feeder he's guarding.
In the old orchard, near Furlong Rd,, a small blackbird chases a red-tail hawk from its perch.
Pygmy nuthatch on the suet feeder.
In the midst of the nuthatch feedings, this little bird showed up to check things out, but didn't stick around once it noticed my camera.
