Western Bluebird
Sialia mexicana

This member of the finch family is common in the San Diego region, found in the mountain, high desert, inland and coastal habitat zones. It is a secondary nest user so its range copies that of the Nuttall's Woodpecker. In our region the species is increasing while nationally its numbers are decreasing.
