Pleasanton Trail Squirrels and Birds

Like I said last time, this post will be on the animals of Pleasanton Trail (or the Arroyo Del Valle Trail, but I can never remember the spelling. XD). I hope you enjoy the photos! Arroyo Del Valle Trail is located in Pleasanton, CA.

It's a boy! :P

I did not see that until I was sorting out the photos. LOL I showed it to some of my friends, half of them think its his "thing" and the other half thinks the squirrel is just doing #2. Tell me what you think in the comments!

I was actually thinking about whether or not to post this photo as some people may find this inappropriate for younger viewers, but I decided to post it anyways. I mean, it's just nature right?

There are a lot of walnut trees on the trail. The squirrels eat a lot!  

This photo makes me think of Spiderman... Maybe because of how the squirrel is hanging on the tree sideways...

Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus)
I tried to get a still image without blurring up, but this bird was just flying all over the place. LOL So there is a slight motion blur. 

I'm guessing this is a Little Blue Heron (Egretta caerulea).

I think this is a Snowy Egret (Egretta thula).

I'm guessing this is a Black Phoebe (Sayornis nigricans)

I made my best guess on the names of the birds, but I could be wrong. If you think I'm wrong, please leave me a comment below! :) Thanks for viewing!
