Peters Canyon... again

I birded Peters Canyon Regional Park for a few hours early this morning - it is fast becoming my favorite local patch. The lake, which is rapidly drying up, is attracting lots of waterbirds, the best being a couple Caspian Terns and singles of American Wigeon, Green Heron, and Spotted Sandpiper (a new Peters Canyon bird for me). Here are a couple photos, one of a California Gnatcatcher (not a great picture, but my first photo of one so I'm happy) and the other of a cooperative Western Scrub-Jay.
