  1. By the warn, rather than crisp, fresh plumage this is an adult. Not possible to tell sex.
  2. This is a Lesser for the reasons Jerry Friedman mentioned, especially the fact that the white wing wing bar is only present in the secondaries, and stops before the primaries. That's diagnostic, if I remember correctly. Head shape is variable and hard to assess in one photos.
  3. Both are Blackpolls. Amount of visible streaking is variable, so note the orange toes/feet. Bay-breasted and Pine will not show this.
  4. Structure looks better for LB for at least some of these birds.
  5. White-throated, Brewer's Blackbird I believe, Lincoln's.
  6. I believe 1 is a Hermit. 2 is one, 3 is Brown Thrasher for sure, and I'm leaning Tennessee on the warbler.
  7. This looks like the western subspecies lutescens, which is much yellower than Eastern birds.
  8. Both Common Yellowthroats. First looks like an adult female and the second a first-winter bird, not sexable.
  9. The wigeon? American with the cream forehead.
  10. Least Sandpiper is correct. They can be variable in size and sometimes cause confusion with bigger birds such as Pectoral.
  11. Both Cali. Note the longish bill and the pink strongly contrasting with the black on the bill- no smudging.
  12. All California except I'm not sure about the large brown immature.
  13. Dunlins, a few Westerns, Leasts and a Killdeer.
  14. They look like White-rumps to me. Is that an expected species there?
