We had an unexpected surprise this morning in our Eugene/Santa Clara-area backyard. While we were enjoying our coffee, a young male COMMON YELLOWTHROAT popped up in the garden. This is yardbird number 120 in the 24 1/2 years we've lived on our suburban 1/2 acre. New yardbirds are few and far between now.
Also seen was a "horned finch," i.e. recently fledged House Finch. This has to be at least a second brood and possibly even a third.
