Highbridge Park

I had a great time birding there on Friday. Many notables such as brown creeper, palm warbler, towhee and this wonderful little guy!

It was quite entertaining watching this gnatcatcher vocalize and flit about the branches. Quite a little character. Speaking of characters, on my way to the nest, I encountered this gnarly looking dude.

Wow, that's a pretty big snake! I was also surprised that his injury didnt seem to affect his flight at all.
After he cleared out, the HB male cruised by, pursued by crows. At the nest, I found momma and 1 chick visible.

She soon departed and that revealed...

two fluffy heads!!!
Good luck little guys!
