Today I went under the oak canopy, and sat on a log in a small clearing by a tiny spring fed brook. Within minutes of stillness, a few birds came within camera range, a couple has already been ID'ed in separate threads. Here's three more; photos taken in Vallejo, CA.

Nuttall's Woodpecker? Movement in the thicket caught my eye, this tiny bird was well hidden:

For the bluebird, it could be coughing up a pellet, insect eaters do that just like owls, to get rid of the pieces they can't digest. Or, it could have dropped some berries, it's hard to tell.
