Today Patricia Lynch and I birded La Rinconada Park in Los Gatos. This is a quiet little park with a large lawn and about 1/2 mile of trails alongside through the oaks. There's a very small creek that currently has water. It's a touch early for spring migrants but we spotted one *Pacific-slope Flycatcher* and a *Vaux's Swift* flew overhead. The best birds were a *Brown Creeper* with nesting material visiting its nest and several *American Goldfinches*. Other birds included *White-breasted Nuthatch*, *Oak Titmouse*, *Spotted Towhee*, *Hairy Woodpecker* and *Yellow-rumped Warbler*. For more information on this park see Lisa Myers self-guided field trip <https://scvas.org/self-guided-birding/la-rinconada-springsummer>.
