Took my first bird-photography-specific adventure in some years - to San Diego this February. This was a bit of a grab shot (while shooting Cali Scrub Jays & Cali Towhees) - but was pretty happy with how it turned out. It opened my eyes as to why "western" OCWA are brighter green than eastern birds (note the similarity between this common native shrub & the bird!). Would be keen to see what others think of it.
I've also been writing little "my take on this hotspot" posts on my website - https://www.peregrineprints.com/journal/ - which I thought may be interesting for some people - compared to the extremely detailed/experienced takes that exist for some of these places.
