Iconic bird in California's mountains. A naughty boy who is just a member of a street gang but wants to be a real raptor. Noisy this time of year... silent as the tomb when there's a nest involved.

We have these noisy birds up here in NW Washington too. Love them, they are so bright and sassy. We were trying (unsuccessfully) to photograph one yesterday, but it hopped/flew so quickly from branch to bush to tree (always just feet away!) What a tease!

Your description "A naughty boy who is just a member of a street gang but wants to be a real raptor." made me laugh.
