A couple of poor "through the windshield" shots of some Bobwhite at Falcon State Park.

 

Ralph Peterson finds us a Canada Goose, which (believe it or not) is extremely rare in the Valley!

 

       

It was tough to shoot as it was behind vegetation much of the time; clearly not one of the "Giant" races, we were leaning towards "Lesser".

    

Over at the butterfly garden, we enjoyed many Theona Checkerspots.

Lesser Goldfinch (token bird in the garden...)
