This adult came out of the marsh to munch on birdseed debris in the dish under our feeder. We often have Red-tailed Hawks or Great Horned Owls hunting in the marsh for Voles.

Stonecrop Gardens, Putnam Co, NY.
Dispatched soon after.
One individual moving slowly SW about 100 meters off the coast near Cape Saunders. Easily seen from shore.
Thought it was a tufted titmouse but looks like they are only in the east. Maybe it is an oak Titmouse?
Kind of look like mallards but not sure if they look different in CA.
