Phainopepla

Each year, at least one or two of these birds shows up locally at Lake Los Carneros.  (And I’m sure many other nearby places.)  But to see many in one place you need to head out to the desert.  And this is the best time of year to do just that.  A trio of them put on quite a display for me down in Joshua Tree.
