  1. Many thanks for your assistance, really nice to have a local with real experience step in.
  2. ok, I've just spent an age checking hummers on line n found some real short tailed Anna's so now could be that. Sorry, Brit with no hummer before my work trip. Too busy in the office not enough time in the field.....must try harder;~)
  3. Hi I've posted these before in mixed mails but these are the only unidentified US birds I'm left with at the moment. The Oriole is distant but doesn't look structured like Bullocks does it? Are there Hooded with all dark heads and pale yellow underparts? Sorry the Pic a bit distant but best I could get of it. Don't know what variation you get in Scotts. I've seen Bullock's and Hooded is very common, it didn't strike me as either but got it just after arriving so really not clued up at that point. The Hummer is really short-tailed, based on what I've seen it's not structured like the commoner species I've seen in numbers. Based on Sibley and the range it's Costa's or Calliope. please assist. I need both but not sure. Many thanks
  4. Hi Please give a definite ID on the attached, I thought I knew until I found another query here that kinda clouded the issue. I'm a Brit so this is just unfamiliar. Thanks
  5. Hi Please could you help. This doesn't seem to have the drooping bill I've seen on Hooded, The head is was all dark, the belly pale yellow. I've hunted the web for something similar but sailed to find this. In the area it seems Hooded, Bullocks or Scott's are the possibilities. I'm not from the U.S, so this is new to me and left me unable to get a firm understanding. Many thanks
  6. Hi Please could you provide an ID on these. poor shot, best before they flew giving nothing. Just hoping that the few field features make them obvious to those of you familiar. Sorry! Many thanks.
  7. Hi Could you please give me a firm ID on these two. British birder so these are a totally new game. Many thanks.
  8. I'm a brit, just here on work but trying to find what I can. thanks.
  9. Hi Could you please give me an ID on this. Not a US birder and this has me stumped. Many thanks,
  10. Please could you identify this Empid. New to the U.S. so these just not familiar at all. Just doesn't seem like the Pacific slopes I've seen. Could you explain what the basis for ID is please. Many thanks.
  11. Hi Please, could you identify the attached photo. I'm assuming based on bill shape some tyrant flycatcher but really not sure. This is all I could get on it before it flew. Could you please explain what I should see as field criteria to enable me to improve my understanding. I'm new to the U.S, so need local knowledge. Many thanks
  12. Hi Could I please have assistance. there are three Orioles seen in Santa Barbara between may to july that I can't readily identify. I'm totally new to birding the U.S. and these have left me confused. I'm sure that you guys will see them as simple but I'm at a loss;~). Please explain how I should identify them, tried hunting the web after Sibly but still not convinced. Many thanks
