Cedar waxwings in the park- one of the most beautiful birds. This guy is all puffed up about something:)
I think this is a Brown-headed Cowbird juvenile and a Black-headed Grosbeak. The Cowbird was chasing the Grosbeak in the air. Maybe the Grosbeak raised the Cowbird? You can see the Grosbeak's bill is filled with berry juice.
Little Black-tailed Deer fawn
Beautiful male House Finch
I love these Northern Flickers - this is a male Red-shafted subspecies- one of the most colorful of the woodpeckers

This little Scrub Jay found the blackberry bush- what a feast
This Jay thinks he owns this bush
He can't decide where to start....
We were very fortunate to have this beautiful Sunday morning in the park. Today the valley is filled with smoke from various forest fires. We need rain:)
