Los Gatos Creek 2/14/2015

I participated in a half day birding trip in Los Gatos Creek on Valentains day.  It was a beautiful sunny day, and birds were singing all over.

Yellow-rumped Warbler

It has a pale throat, so probably a first winter female.

 Belted King fisher

It has a blue and a chestnut band, so I believe it is an adult female.

Wilson’s Snipe

There were many snipes, but I wouldn’t have found them without my fellow birders.  They blend into the mud and rocks so well.

They blend into rocks, too.  How many Killdeers are in this photo?
