  1. The reason I asked about Costa's is that I was at a location where there was a migratory bird count and banding operation. The nets were set up in an area on a saddle where there was a lot of Tree Tobacco and Yerba Santa, with several hummingbirds foraging -- especially on the Tree Tobacco. The official bird counters and banders uploaded checklists with the following hummingbird counts: 6 -- Black-chinned Hummingbird 2 -- Costa's Hummingbird 2 -- Rufous Hummingbird 16 -- Rufous/Allen's Hummingbird 1 -- Calliope Hummingbird 5 -- hummingbird sp., Trochilidae sp.
  2. I've just got 3 or 4 pics of Gadwalls. This is the only decent one.
  3. Taken on 4-29-2021 in the morning at Bear Divide in Angeles National Forest (between Canyon Country and Lake View Terrace, CA). Ongoing migration count and banding station. I'm having trouble identifying these. The first two pictures are of the same bird. The 3rd and 4th pictures may or may not be of the same bird as the first two pictures. All four pictures were taken within 3 minutes of each other, but I took some shots of a towhee in between, so I didn't have my eyes on the first bird the whole time.
  4. Is it possibly a female Costa's, or is Anna's more likely?
  5. I should have added this information. There were 95 Lazuli Buntings identified that day by the bird counters, and no Indigo Buntings. In fact, the bird count occurred daily for 6 or 7 weeks, and no Indigo Buntings were identified. This bird is probably a Lazuli Bunting, but it seems more like an Indigo -- if its not an entirely different genus. I've never seen an Indigo Bunting before.
  6. Taken on 4-29-2021 in the morning at Bear Divide in Angeles National Forest (between Canyon Country and Lake View Terrace, CA). Ongoing migration count and banding station. Would this be an Indigo Bunting?
  7. Taken on 4-29-2021 in the morning at Bear Divide in Angeles National Forest (between Canyon Country and Lake View Terrace, CA). Ongoing migration count and banding station. All photos are of the same bird.
  8. Taken on 5-7-2021 in the afternoon at Lower Scholl Canyon Park in Glendale, CA. Can anyone tell what this bird is?
  9. Taken 5-7-2021 in the afternoon at Lower Scholl Canyon Park in Glendale, CA. The first two photos are the same bird. The third photo was taken 26 minutes later about 20 yards away, so probably a different bird. I think these are both Wrentit's, but wonder if either are female Bushtit's.
  10. Taken on 5-14-2021 just before sunset in a residential backyard, Glendale, CA. I can't tell if this is a Bullock's or Hooded Oriole. There was an adult male Hooded Oriole seen about 30 minutes before.
  11. Taken on 5-14-2021 at sundown in a residential backyard, Glendale, CA. Is this a Cooper's? In the first photo, the eye is visible above and slightly to the left of the fly on the leaf.
