Buff-bellied Hummingbird

Besides the usual chatter, these actually seemed to be singing. Assuming it wasn't the same bird in different areas of the park, it ended the chatter with a long, sustained, but decrescendoing noise that threw me off.

Laughing Gull
4
Great Egret
1
Yellow-crowned Night-Heron
2
Buteo sp.

One was completely pale underneath. Didn't get a good look at it, but was larger than a pigeon and was flying over the Arroyo.

The second one was flushed from a tree need the tall pine. It was quite large to the point that I thought it was possibly a yellow crowned night heron since they had been roosting in the trees. However, it had white and black bands on the tail. The bands seemed fairly even spaced. Otherwise, the underside seemed dull and indistinct.

X
Golden-fronted Woodpecker

Two of them have nested in a screech owl box, and obviously had young since they were taking food to the box.
