The California Quail. All of these birds were photographed during our current three-day trip to Julian California. There are more to come. Julian and the surrounding mountains are incredibly rich in wild bird life

Black Capped Chickadee?? I am no expert on bird identification, so if I am not correct, I would be most grateful to learn the proper names. So please do not be shy and I will correct as informed. Thank you!

Western Bluebird?
We are alone everywhere we hike and picnic on this trip which is most unusual for this time of year. Cheers to you from beautiful un-crowded Julian!

    • Woodpeckers are so bold in coloration. The size issue depends a lot on how zoomed in I am. When a bird is still for a few seconds, I can zoom in more. Thank you my talented friend~

  3. Hi Cindy,
    What you thought was a black capped chickadee is actually a dark eyed junco, Oregon subspecies. The bird with the white eye ring looks like some kind of warbler. Would have to look that one up. Love the pics
