  1. I believe both birds in the last two pics are Common, and the two rightmost of the three closest terns in the first pic also look like common.
  2. Great horned owls are sexually dimorphic, with females being 10-20% larger than males. The male also has a larger voice box and a deeper voice. In terms of plumage, there is no reliable ways to differentiate between sex.
  3. Overall too brown above for Semi, or Western, for that matter.
  4. No, GWFG would be much smaller, with a smaller bill with a smaller white base, with a smaller butt.
  5. Black-headed. The streaking looks within range for BHGR to me, and the bill has a dark upper mandible.
  6. WOWZA! This looks great for at the very least a Glaucous-winged x Western Gull (hybrid), if not a pure Glaucous-winged! Please consider reporting this ASAP!
  7. The decoys look more like Black Swans than geese.
  8. Unidentifiable imo, but with that long tail there aren't many options.
  9. Pac-slope. Some juvs can be paler below.
  10. 10 lifers seen on recent pelagic; Pomarine Jaeger Long-tailed Jaeger Cassin's Auklet Black Albatross Ashy Storm-Petrel Black Storm-Petrel Pink-footed Shearwater Buller's Shearwater Short-tailed Shearwater NAZCA BOOBY
  11. Boat launched from Morro Bay. We got some really nice birds, including all 3 Jaegers, 5 species of shearwater (including a Short-tailed Shearwater), and best of all, a subadult NAZCA BOOBY! eBird trip report: https://ebird.org/tripreport/76109/105312
  12. Yup, we usually get at least one a year down here.
  13. 1-2, 9. - Least Sandpiper 3. - Peep sp. (Probably Least) 4-5. Horned Grebe 6-8. Short-billed Gull
  14. Yes, and Calliope Hummingbirds usually have some white above the bill as well.
