Goldfinch working the new sprouts on top of some tall pine or fir trees, near private house past the old orchard
This western bluebird posed for a long time, private drive near Furlong Rd.
One of the backyards was busy with juvenile bluebirds plus adults, as well as goldfinches and house finch hunting and feeding in the grasses.
Among the house finches in the yard was this beautiful red finch, framed by the grasses they were feeding on.

In the tall grasses near the house, saw this jack rabbit crouched as small as he could get, hoping I wouldn't see him.
He didn't move a muscle when the camera started clicking - I did see his nose twitching, but that's all.
The resident female red-tailed hawk zoomed by, heading for a favorite perch by the road, which overlooks the lower orchard, part of her realm.
