This guy has been haunting the eucalyptus grove at the entrance to Paradise Cove for a few weeks now. I grabbed the shot through the car window, so it's pretty bad, but even so you can see how bright red and funny and lovely he is. Either a juvenile nuttall's (there's a family of them in the canyon) or a pileated woodpecker. (But he's kind of small and his head isn't pointy so I guess probably not.)
I wish I were a real birder so I could tell you for sure.
