Quick stop at Dry Creek Cemetery

A few weekends back we made a quick stop at Dry Creek Cemetery in hopes of finding some Evening Grosbeaks that had been reported. When we were new birders, Dry Creek Cemetery provided our first Mountain Bluebird and Northern Goshawk. We didn't find the grosbeaks on this trip, but had a pleasant time anyway.

California Quails are always quite abundant. They hang out on the headstones:

And under the pine trees:

And in the Hawthorne trees, munching away on the berries:

They're fun to watch as they chase each other around, berries in mouth:

Dry Creek Cemetery is a beautiful place, and I can't wait for spring to come around and liven it back up!
