5 Residents Year Around ---RESIDENTS YEAR AROUND---

6 Nest in communal groups; some guard hoard while others are away Can be spotted on dead trees or branches where holes for acorns can be drilled Sounds like Woody Woodpecker Acorn Woodpecker

7 Buries acorns that often sprout, so they are critical “oak farmers” Piercing call It’s blue, and a jay, but is NOT a Blue Jay Western Scrub Jay

Groups often stay in contact with little sputtering sounds. Very susceptible to domestic cats. Male’s song is a dragged out “Chi-ca-go” : California Quail

12 A bird of mountain streams, and is always near the water. Has a most interesting feeding method: perches on stream rock as here, dives into the water and flies underwater against strong current while eating larvae etc. on rocks and river bottom. Also known as the Water Ouzel Complex exuberant song -- John Muir’s favorite bird. American Dipper
