The other day I noticed a different colored swallow flying with the violet-greens, and discovered it to be a barn swallow.
Heard a noise behind me while standing in a small grove of apple trees, and turned to find a quail emerging from a small wood pile - this might be a quail nest, because a female emerged, too, but the male came first and was more visible to draw my attention away from his mate.
Lower orchard red-tail makes a point of swinging by while I'm with the swallow nest boxes, just to let me know (s)he's watching.
This western bluebird sits above an apple tree opening used as a swallow's nest last year, and seems to be adopted again by a pair of violet-greens who have been sitting near it in the mornings and evenings.
P.S. Golden-crowned sparrows and dark-eyed juncos are all gone right now, they migrate away for the summer, and will return in the Fall.
