The only one I know is the California Black-Capped Chickadee and the Black-hooded Warbler, which doesn't really have a black head, but has a black head. Same with the chickadee. :P

I have also seen a few of these birds. Though they are not all black heads like the photo of the darkeyed junco I took. In fact male darkeyed juncos have black heads while females have more of a light brown to their head.

I have never seen owls,but i have see bats. In fact every sumer we get a group of bats at in our neighborhood one night it will be at my house and we would whatch them fly out in the evening. every few week the bats would switch housed and and stop in make a house their home. They will move from house to house each time but remain in my neigborhood. Come fall the bats are long gone. In the spring we get this woodpecker every that is constantly wakeing us up in the early morning pecking at our chimney. year round we see bald eagles. (the american symbol of freedom) We live walking distance from a lake thats why. We see these eagle at a low distance low enough to see talons,beak,body,and body color. Just two days ago while outside my house enjoying some spring sunshine we saw a bald eagle curcling above. I knew right away what was happening. apearntly the eagle had pinned down a prey item. all the smaller birds were clearing the way by then. Im guessing the smaller birds did not have getting eatin by a eagle on their daily to do list.

Last weekend my dad and I were working on our trailer stored at a friend house for our camping vacation comeing in one or two weeks. Their property is large and has a good amount of forested area.(Its across the street from a lake. I live just up the road and down a hill from there. Though my place is not as forested and is a smaller property.) Right as we were packing up the tools a small robin type bird was in a branch above us. It just stared chirping at us and did not seem to think much of us. It flew off after a few minutes. Then when we left to run go to the store from there it started rianing like crazy. It had been sunny all day so at the time I was in a short sleaved shirt and a pair of geans. I think the bird we saw was something like a spotted towhee. Wish I had my camera at the time. the bird was pretty and it would have made a great wildlife photo.

I dont really like citys that much either. In fact on the way to a docters appointment last week I noticed that a logging company is going to cut down a section of forest that I have always enjoyed. But this company is good. Every tree they cut down they go and plant three or five new ones in the some area. In fact the company planted the section of forested area themselves.

Also on saturday I spotted two birds on the entrance to my porch as well as one in a bush by the shed.

I live in the suburbs. We get lots of birds here. suburbs can be pretty. My uncle used to live on farmland but then he got a pramotion and a job switch he's now a police cheif in a more suburban place I believe. farmland is the best place to live in my opinion. theres wide open spaces and lots of wildlife. Lots more animals includeing barkyard birds campared to urban. I once saw two hawks at once their as well as plenty of small birds like sparrows,chikadees etc.
