Black-headed Grosbeak
Bird was identified by large beak, coloring, and black and white wing pattern. This bird was on the boardwalk trail along with a spotted towhee and stellar's jay. Coloring was definitely different than spotted towhee. I was unable to get pictures as all birds moved quickly through the area.

Evening Grosbeak
Birds were located in a different area than previous reports. These birds were in trees above the old water flume along the trail just past the hummingbird garden on the way to the ponds.
