Cheating at Birding

Today we went out to view a bird banding presentation put on by SFBBO in Milpitas. It was quite a presentation! Birds around us in the bush included Lazuli Buntings, Great-horned owls and red-shouldered and cooper’s hawks! And those weren’t even birds in the hand!

Our first bird! Male downy woodpecker, so freaking cute :)
