My husband and I traveled to Lake Tahoe for a wedding last weekend. We didn't have much time for birding, but I managed to get a few shots of Steller's jays and mountain quail from the balcony of our hotel which looked out at the woods. The Northern flicker happened to be poking around in the grass in front of the clubhouse where the wedding was held.
