it was a very windy day at Madera Canyon Sunday morning, which cut down on some of the hummingbird and small bird flights.

But, their was banter between the Mexican jays and Acorn Woodpeckers; and between the Black-headed Grosbeak and the male Hepatic Tanager. This was a 5 shot sequence, before the Grosbeak flew away.

Note: I shrunk these to 85% to make them smaller for posting, but the colors look pale.

Hope you enjoy these
