Some bay-area birds

I have not had time for much real birding recently, but I did go to Los Gatos, California, in late January, and I was somewhat surprised at how "birdy" the place was. There is a wonderful natural area with hiking trails in the hills just south of town. I recommend that any birder visiting the area take a hike up there.

Lots of Northern Mockingbirds in the residential areas.

Chestnut-backed Chickadees were in both forested and residential areas.
