Hi all,
  Sorry this is a bit late (had to go watch some Cardinals last night!)  A visiting birder, from Portland Oregon, Charlie Oldham, came to my yard with Martha Gaddy.  They had seen several birds at Martha's, including a Coopers Hawk.  In my yard, they just missed the Golden-Crowned Kinglets (3 at my bubbler) but we did see a Black Throated Green W. bathing there, and my resident ETS'.  Martha had to leave, so Charlie and I went to TGP from around 11 am- 1 pm.  We saw the following:
 
Gaddy Bird Garden:

Wood Thrush
Hermit Thrush
Common Grackle  (new to Charlie, and his iridescence was fully appreciated!)
Blue Headed Vireo
Yellow Rumped Warbler
Heard:  Rufous Sided Towhee

Creek by the Stables:

Winter Wren (in the thicket on the way to the creek, with more Thrushes)
Red-Bellied WP
Black Throated Green Warblers
Chickadees
Cardinal
Summer Tanagers (2- very actively chasing each other)
Am. Robin
Blue Jays

Cypress Circle and Van Benthuysen Pond:
(met up with Torrey Berger who gave Larry great directions on getting to LCC from there!)

Yellow Rumped W.
Palm W.
Nashville W.
Tennessee W.
Black Throated Green W.
White Breasted Nuthatch
House Wren (on the bench)
Brown Creeper, several
Ruby Crowned Kinglet
RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH- one female

Notes:  not a single Am. Crow, and no Brown Thrasher or Red-Headed WP, but hopefully Charlie will get them before he heads home.

Good birding everyone..and good luck to you, Charlie!   (Birders are the nicest people!)
