Juvenile White-Crowned Sparrow





A very dirty Green-Winged Teal. If this was Peanuts, this duck would be Pigpen...





A Lark Sparrow...





A Red-Shafted Northern Flicker...

Ladder-Backed woodpecker





Mallard, or "Quack from above!"





Red-Tailed hawk watching the trail. I think he was looking for a hiker carrying beef jerky...
