A nice day at the feeders in my yard today! One first winter male Black-headed Grosbeak (showed nice lemon yellow under the wings); numerous (I would estimate 20 to 30) Pine Siskin; male and female Cassin's Finches (about 5), 1 American Goldfinch, the usual California Quail, Lesser Goldfinches, House finches and sparrows (white-crowned and house), and one Cooper's Hawk that hung around the yard off and on all day and did make one unsuccessful swoop past the feeders directly in front of my front window!!
