I don't know what type of bird this was, but I saw it in Santa Barbara, at my sister's house while visiting there in February. It is an unknown bird to me. There were lots of this bird around in her yard every day, and my photos got lost in the shovel of too many photos.
In this photo, it looked mean and not quite please with my constant present. Since it is sort of blending in with everything around, it didn't pop out as much as I wanted too.
I don't like it when I don't know the name of the name of the bird, and I can't even described it on Google to find the name. So, now it is another unknown bird to me.
