  1. Ah, yes, that's a great explanation. Thank you so much!
  2. I'd appreciate some help with this bird. I'm wondering if it's a Fox Sparrow, non-sooty. Er...or sooty, I guess. Spotted today in Oakland, California. Thanks!
  3. Oh gosh, I thought I could recognize a Say's Phoebe. Nope! Thanks very much for your help. Much appreciated!
  4. These are two birds from October of 2018 in the East Bay area of California (near San Francisco). I think the first is a poorly resolved Western Bluebird, but I'm not sure of the one in the next couple of shots. I'm wondering if it's a flycatcher of some kind. Thanks!
  5. Wow! That's yet another example of the education I get on this forum. Thank you so much!
  6. Seen yesterday on the coast near Pescadero Beach just south of San Francisco. I suppose it's a Song Sparrow, but I'm a little confused by the tail which is notched. Cornell says that the tail should be rounded. Thanks for your help.
  7. Oh, OK. Thanks very much. Seems that Anna’s are by far the more abundant hummingbird in the parts of California that I’ve been to — mostly East Bay and South to Santa Barbara. Or perhaps they are the most tolerant of people and so I just see them more. Having speculated, I guess I’ll go look it up somewhere.
  8. I'm wondering if this could be a Black-throated Hummingbird. Seen a few days ago on the coast near Big Sur. Thanks for your help!
  9. Oh, OK. Yeah, it’s beak must be tucked away. Thanks!
  10. Sorry for the poor photo. It was taken with an iPhone at some distance from our car. Thanks for your help.
  11. Hey, that’s our second lifer during our short stay in Santa Barbara. Thank you!
  12. Many thanks for your thoughts on this sweet looking bird
