The California Yard Birds

Description of Images Below

1. Northern Mockingbird sings all day and is known to have over 40 different voices, including mocking a dog.
2. Two Black Phoebes come here. One is nicknamed the Woodszo, and its voice is beautiful. 
3. Black Starling – Yellow Beak
4. House Sparrow, a group of 4-15 come.
5. Beautiful hummingbirds live here. They stay in the avocado tree and have made many nests and have raised many fledglings here.  
6. Lesser Goldfinch, a group of 3-6 come in the morning.
7. The Cassini Finch 2-4 come during the day.
8. Western Scrub Jay 3 of them visit often. They have amazing voices that reminded me of the Northern Mockingbird.
9. Parakeets are very voiceful in groups of 30-80 flying around the neighborhood. When there was a crab tree next door, they came and flew through the backyard. Extraordinaire!
10. Hawk
11. Groups of Yellow-rumped Warbler visit. 
12. Woodpecker
