For our second sortie, we of course chose Bonelli Park. First bird we saw was the American Robin, a can't-miss species here.
Another common bird is the Black Phoebe - not just here but in almost every city park in California.
Woodpeckers are usually not easy to find but somehow this Downy was too busy hunting for insects to be aware of two gawking birders.
Another common park resident is the Western Bluebird.
As we approached the lake, we encountered some shorebirds. The Greylag Goose is so common that birders no longer pay attention to them.
Then there are the Egrets - both Great and Snowy.
There were also blackbirds galore. Both the Great-tailed Grackle and the Red-winged Blackbird reside among the reeds.
