Bird Brain

A female Downy Woodpecker...

doing what woodpeckers do.
Hunting Downy

Other birds seen in the yard:
American Goldfinch
American Crow
American Robin
Black Phoebe
Chestnut Backed Chickadee
Hermit Thrush
Scrub Jay
California Towhee

Some of these birds are incredibly small and incredibly skittish, like the Chestnut Backed Chickadee and Hermit Thrush. I'll post photos when I get some decent ones.
