California is home to numerous types of birds, more than 600 species to be exact! And luckily for native Californians, about two thirds of all bird species in the US can be found throughout the Golden State.
Birds are lovely to look at, as they have beautiful varying colors and come in all manner of sizes. Birds are also capable of making various sonorous musical sounds, by either call or song.
The following are just some of the songbirds that can be found throughout southern California:
• Lesser Goldfinch • White-breasted Nuthatch
• Steller’s Jay • Black-Headed Grosbeak
• Wrentit • Purple Finch
• Black Phoebe • Bewick’s Wren
• California Thrasher • Northern Flicker
