"Bewick Wrens have a varied repertoire of call notes. ...
The twittering notes occurred in a very unusual situation. I had removed a piece of bark from a tree to look into the nest cavity of a wren. When I replaced the bark, I did not leave enough room for the birds to get in again. The next morning when I returned they were trying to enter with nesting material without success. I enlarged the opening and both birds entered. When the male emerged he peered in all directions, hopped around the hole and gave the twittering notes. His behavior bore a curious resemblance to a human saying, “This is too much for me to understand.” "

I am always happy to hear and see these tiny beauties.
"The non-native non-migratory Nutmeg Mannikin, also known as the Scaly-breasted Munia or the Spice Finch, has been added to the California Bird Records Committee State List. The listing has proved somewhat controversial, as the species is endemic to Asia.
Reports place the first discovered "wild" birds as three young fledglings in a nest at Cocoa Beach, Florida in 1964 , the species was, and continues to be a popular pet store bird and the "wild" birds most likely the offspring of escaped caged birds. In California, the species is prominent in the river drainages of Los Angeles and Orange counties. The bird's status as a companion was likely decided by its social behavior which is often described as gregarious, which coincidentally often prompts the bird to seek escape. The listing is causing excitement and a healthy discussion about the place of introduced species in the world of birding."

"BEHAVIOUR.
Overall, little blue herons are not energetic birds, they are usually seen walking daintily and slowly along their habitats. Their flight however, is powerful and elegant. Their wing strokes are quicker in comparison to larger herons, flying with their heads downwards and legs extended. These birds are silent, but make low croaking or clucking sounds at times. When fighting, their sounds resemble a screaming parrot (Thome, 2001).When grooming or scratching, these herons have a unique feature of a built in row of teeth along their middle toe mostly used for their head, neck and throat (All About Birds, 2016). Juvenile little blue herons mingle with snowy egrets because they benefit in their whitecoloured state. They mix into these flocks for camouflage, this allows them to gain survival advantages. The immature herons gain extra protection against predators and capture more fish in the egrets’ company (All About Birds, 2016). It is said that because of such advantage these herons remain white for their first year.
DISTRIBUTION.
The little blue heron is widespread over northern South America, extending into the amazon basin, and along the coast (Fig. 2). It is also found in the Caribbean region and along the coast of southern North America. They migrate to inland regions of North America to breed. During the winter these herons migrate to Mexico and Baja California (Thome, 2001)."

Here's a YELLOW moment from earlier this year.
We had so much rain over the Winter that the hills were green much longer than typical for our area.
