i posted a video i took of the local alarm clock bird...i believe it is a red headed wood pecker...or perhaps a red breasted sap sucker...any way he loves to rat-a-tat-tat on the (metal!) satellite dish early each morning!! the clip is on my facebook page...laurel woodsorrel...plus we have goldfinches...pigging out on the thistle seeds (nyger) plus blue birds, blue jays, indigo buntings, flickers, crows, ravens, osprey, great blue herons, snowy egrets, wild turkey, cow birds, Calif. quail and the larger Mountain Quail, wrens and I hear Swainson's Thrush. Also hummingbirds, black capped chickadees, Rufous Sided Towhees , mourning doves, and an occasional flock of sand hills cranes migrating overhead. Also Canada Geese.
