|Brush Rabbit, California Quail, and unidentified hopping bird, probably towhee as there were several around|
|Dark-eyed Junco (if I'm remembering correctly. They were not heavy enough to make tracks in the icy snow but I think I took this photo after one had scratched or hit a soft spot... or something.)|
Then I was distracted by a sparrow in a flock of juncos. I tried hard to get a photo of this skulker in the grass...
It flew. I followed. It disappeared. I pished. It immediately popped up on a bare tree and stared at me. Hip hip hooray! A Lincoln's Sparrow! We see them seldom here and I had not managed to get a photo before.
So I took lots of photos.
