Birds from my backyard

I've enjoyed some much needed downtime this week. We've had fantastic weather so I spent a few hours catching up on my reading on my porch. Sitting still and quiet on the porch, I was amazed at how much wildlife was active around me. My home backs to a golf course and we're only a half mile from the edge of the urban growth boundary so birds and animals are common here (even had a coyote pass through the backyard once). Yesterday, I brought my camera out and caught a few good shots of the birds that inhabit my backyard and beyond.

… and I haven't been able to figure out what this little guy is yet but he sure loves to tease our chickens?
