Yellow-billed Magpie ~ This magpie is endemic to central California. It is smaller than the Black-billed Magpie found in other areas. I don't usually shoot birds on picnic tables, but this was the first photograph I've ever gotten of this bird, so until I get one perched in the old oak trees that they love, picnic table it is!
Scrub Jay ~ This jay was photograped at Big Morongo Canyon Preserve in Morongo Valley, CA.
Hermit Warbler ~ This immature female Hermit Warbler was photographed near Covington Park in Morongo Valley, CA.
