I go birding every free time I land. I try to sneak in time for birding in between a planned event. Even if it's 30 minutes, I'll take it as I can get it! The House Wren is a tiny bird but with a big punch of a song and chatter. The Northern Mockingbird is full of mimic and can be quite the show off of its talent in the variety of bird species it mimics. These photos were taken April 2014 at Newport Beach Back Bay.
