These birds were found in the disturbed chaparral bordering the north end of Jacumba Valley Ranch.

This is one of a pair of adult males that arrived last week. They appear at my feeders several times a day.  I suspect that they are scouting territories to defend once the mademoiselles arrive.

    hi i really enjoyed your photos, the fkucker fight was amazing. you have inspired me. i am in idyllwild and the songbirds are starting to come back, although perhaps a little early. Winter isn’t over up here. Spotted towhees and mountain bluebirds are coming in two by twos. Keep up the good work.
