This my favorite too, just awesome. I and looking forward to your pond also. Hopefully winter will clear out sooner then later for you.
We haven't seen them in the yard since, so we must have reached an equilibrium here where we have our territory and they have theirs. Maybe some trail cams can catch them.

For all you bird watching fans - do you have a favorite internet source for identifying the birds you see?

I downloaded a app, have never used it yet, Merlin Bird Id by Cornell. Also there is ebird by Cornell. Again never yet used, but it is sitting there in case I want to.

How about a pair of California Quail.

We have hoards of them here, often on my morning walk around the neighborhood, I see groups of 25-75 and in the winter, we often have that many in our yard. When the powder snow is deep, they put on quite a show! They'll land on our fence, barely above the snow, then fly out near the feeder and disappear into the powder! Then the head will pop up like a periscope and they'll plow on over to the feeder.

When the snow crusts over, it is real bumpy. Then they run over the top, hurrying to the scattered seed. Many times, a hollow will get in the way and they'll face-plant, then get up and continue running. They're a riot to watch!
