This was a male sitting on the bank along Tice Creek, Walnut Creek (next to Trader Joe's).
Female attaching scrub jay. She missed.
Stealth bird; being harassed and chased by a western bluebird. Was not in view for more than 20 seconds. called softly a couple times a rapid twittering tititititittititi much like a gray kingbird.
