Pedernales Falls State Park

Took a drive out to Pedernales Falls State Park to visit the bird blind and see how it was constructed. Here are a few of the birds we saw...

Lesser Goldfinches 
(Carduelis psaltria)

Not sure about this ID...  about the same size as a Lesser Goldfinch but I don't think it is a female LGF because of the white eye-ring.

Black-crested Titmouse
(Baeolophus atricristatus)

Northern Mockingbird
 (Mimus polyglottos)

Three House Finches (one red male, one orange male, & one female)
(Carpodacus mexicanus)

Dark-eyed Junco
(Junco hyemalis)
The park volunteer pointed this bird out to me and identified it.  Not an uncommon bird but the first one I've ever seen.
