This blog is a catalog of all the critters that I've come across here on our property in La Cresta (Santa Rosa Plateau, Murrieta, SW Riverside County, CA) and managed, sometimes barely, to photograph.

4/16/11 Lark Sparrow (Chondestes grammacus).
An unmistakable sparrow with its striking face pattern and dark spot on the chest. Common here on the property, especially in the warmer months. This one is perched on a sycamore tree off the driveway.
