I was watching the adult Black-crowned Night Heron in back, when the darker heron landed on the front rock. It wasn't until later that I realized it was a juvenile Night Heron, possibly picking up some pointers on fishing technique. It eventually flew to an open spot, where I found and photographed it, hunting on its own.

I am thinking this might be a mated pair of Wigeons together for the winter, just chillin' on a beautiful afternoon. Not certain though, so if anyone has any additional info, please comment.

This afternoon on the river was a busy time for Night Herons, possibly a Night Heron Happy Hour. I spotted three adults on rocks before I came across this juvenile, visibly excited about fishing. I watched for several minutes and was eventually joined by an attractive pair of American Wigeons.

At this location, on a day when I observed a lone adult Gulf Fritillary, I also spotted this solitary caterpillar on netting supporting a passionflower vine, which was also visited by Argentine Ants.

This uphill trail in Griffith Park was quieter than it had been in summer, so I was attentive when I heard bird noises in the brush. When a single individual popped out onto a stump to check me out, I snapped a quick photo. Luckily it was enough to lead me to a bird I hadn't photographed before, the Yellow-rumped Warbler. There is a good deal of discussion about officially designating several subspecies, but to my knowledge, this has not yet been done.

Today I returned to an area which in the spring hosted a multitude of these brightly colored insects. The "official" term for a group of butterflies, appropriately enough, is "a kaleidoscope"! On this day, the kaleidoscope was reduced to a single colored flake, this Gulf Fritillary.

Fortunately, my arrival today coincided perfectly with this female Kingfisher's dinner time. I heard her chattering on a wire mid-river, then she dived and came back with a fish which she batted around a bit, then swallowed. Then she dived once more and caught another. After she popped that one down, I moved upriver. When I returned later she was at the same spot with a very large fish. She didn't seem to know what to do with it... I watched for several minutes and never saw her try to swallow it. Then I looked away for a moment, and she was gone.

On a partially overcast day, I was checking out the ducks on the river: Mallards, American Wigeons, Cinnamon Teals and ...something different. After I got home, I looked them up and discovered that Blue-winged Teals had joined the river flock.

A pair of Osprey were hovering and passing over a section of the river blocked from view as I approached. Ordinarily after diving, an Osprey will reappear with a fish, or unencumbered resume its hunt. This time the successful bird remained on the river, seemingly unable to lift its noticeably large catch. After struggling and rearranging the fish for several minutes, it began feeding on a convenient rock.

From the top of a river embankment, I noticed a large number of European Starlings congregating in the adjacent park behind me. Periodically they would form a flock and begin to make repeated passes over the river, wheeling and turning in a ballet that was beautiful to see. After one of these flights, the Starling flock did something surprising; they alighted in a semi-protected pool mid-river and together began furiously leaping and flapping in what I quickly realized was a communal bath! It evoked the crowded public pools of my youth, filled with euphoric children in a massive "water fight". After several minutes of mayhem, they took flight "en masse" to resume their river overflight, returning to the pool several times to resume their splashing, before eventually returning to the trees in the park where I photographed a freshy bathed individual in repose.

I am thinking this is a Cassin's Kingbird due to the white under the eye and smallish white tips at the end of the tail. Not confident, however, so if I am incorrect, please add a comment as to the deciding factors. Thanks!

The LA River is full of unexpected surprises. You could see a car chase... or perhaps, as on this day, a Cher impersonator... seen here with a chorus of dancers in tuxedos! The Bob Mackey outfit was spectacular, though the yellow shoes were somewhat questionable!

This itinerant band of Canada Geese somehow reminded me of the Earps approaching O.K. Corral. What made the scene even more interesting was a similar row of American Coots following not too far behind (shown in an earlier observation), along with several Black-necked Stilts. Unfortunately, I was unable to capture an adequate overall view of this unusual migration.
