Birds in Shadow Cliffs Regional Park (Pleasanton, CA)

Today I have photos from Shadow Cliff Regional Park in Pleasanton, CA. Shadow Cliff Regional Park is part of the East Bay Parks District, and is a great recreational area to visit. There are many picnic tables, and a lake that you can swim in. Also, the park is a great place for some nice bird and animal photography as there are many ducks, birds, and geese there.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To see my best photos from Shadow Cliff Regional Park, use this link.

Not too sure, but this could be a Golden Crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia atricapilla). If I'm wrong, please correct me in the comments below.
