  1. A large flock of birds kept up a constant banter around our ship throughout the night last night. It was way too dark and they weren’t close enough to see clearly, but they appeared to be white-ish. I recorded them (Dropbox link attached) in the hope that someone could ID



    . Merlin identifies them as Royal Terns. Sure enough, I see there is a year-round population along the California coast south of Los Angeles where we are. Please have a listen and let me know if you concur. Thanks!

  2. I pulled this off my NextDoor feed, shot recently in the SF Bay Area. So far, this bird has been identified as a brown eagle (yes, you read that right ), adolescent golden eagle, Swainson’s hawk, juvenile female red-tailed hawk, peregrine falcon and Cooper’s hawk. The person who appears to be most knowledgeable is saying juvenile female red-tailed hawk. Your thoughts, please.
