Warblers of Winter
Another calm-after-the-storm day. I thought a yellow-rump warbler would be my favorite sighting for the day, but then this Townsend's popped in later! It took a chunk of suet, then blasted right back to the vegetation to eat. Contrary to typical bird behavior, it actually sat still long enough for a picture.
Other sightings/sounds: red breasted nuthatch, crows, robins, song sparrow, scrub jay, starlings (one red tail imitator), black-capped chickadees, Stellar's, kingfisher?, male and female mallard, juncos, great egret, flicker, bushtits, house finches.
