Surprised to see three soaring overhead loosely together above Forestville treatment pond headed west. Slight dihedral in flight. Smallish head relative to tail size and massive wings. On at least two birds, white patches in flight feathers (not in wingpits) and white at base of tail, indicating immatures. On at least one bird, the golden nape shined in certain angles.

Any chance Oak Titmice could be nesting this late? Saw one carrying a large piece of plant material (possible nesting material??), and another shaking its wings.
