The most common birds seen in the dry summer season are wrentit, common bushtit, and rufous-sided towhee.
"The first sound I usually hear is that of the wrentit, a secretive, little bird with a descending whistle that mimics the beat of a bouncing Ping-Pong ball."
I struggled with the wrentit, a bird whose family was totally new to me and whose compound name both offers and denies help, and with the golden-crowned kinglet, which looks so much like the European goldcrest but isn’t.
