  1. Thanks everyone. That's my first Thrush of any kind. I had a pic before that I thought was a Thrush, but it turned out to be an American Pipit sitting about 10 feet up in a tree.
  2. Thanks everyone for your comments. Sorry if my post was not written clearly.
  3. Really? That bill didn't look right. It looks yellowish orange and thick to me. I thought it was a cross between a male Common Merganser and a female Northern Shoveler -- haha. But I trust you guys. Thanks.
  4. Taken 2-26-2021 in the afternoon at Puddingstone Lake in San Dimas, CA. This bird was in the background of photo I took. I can't tell what it is.
  5. Taken 2-26-2021 in the afternoon at Puddingstone Lake in San Dimas, CA I've never photographed a Thrush before, but would this be a Thrush? Maybe a Hermit Thrush?
  6. Taken 2-26-2021 in the afternoon at Puddingstone Lake in San Dimas, CA. There were 3 or 4 Grebes in this cove. A couple of them were Western Grebes (like the first photo). Then there was the one in the second photo. I never did see its bill, but is it a Clark's Grebe?
  7. Taken 2-17-2021 above the Los Angeles River, south of CA Hwy-2 overpass in Elysian Valley, CA. Would this be called a Dark-morph Red-tailed Hawk?
  8. Thanks everyone. I spent some time trying to figure out what else they could be, but couldn't come up with anything.
  9. Taken 2-17-2021 at the Los Angeles River south of CA Hwy-2 overpass in Elysian Valley, CA. All these photos were taken within about 20 yards of each other in 5 different trees/shrubs. I believe they are all the same species. There were a few identifiable Yellow-rumped (Audubon's) Warblers nearby. I'm thinking these are all Yellow-rumped Warblers, but I'm not confident. If they are, the typical yellow patches and eye crescents are very muted. The pairs of photos in the same tree/shrub are the same bird (1st pair same, 2nd pair same, 3rd pair same). Some of the photos may be the same bird in different trees. I don't have shots of the rump for any of these birds, but where you can see the underside, end of the tail, I think it looks good for YRWA.
  10. Taken 2-17-2021 at the Los Angeles River near Fletcher Dr. bridge in Atwater Village, CA. When I took this shot, I thought it was a Black-crowned Night Heron by it's size and stance. But now I'm not so sure. It's all brown, but doesn't have white spots on its back. And it's head is quite bushy -- although it was a bit windy. Could this be anything other than BCNH ?
  11. Taken 2-27-2021 above the Los Angeles River near Fletcher Drive bridge in Atwater Village, CA. What are these white pigeons?
  12. Simon says "Stand on one leg."
  13. Taken 2-21-2021 late afternoon on a residential backyard slope in Glendale, CA. I occasionally get a Bewick's Wren at my suet feeder, or on my balcony deck below feeders. But yesterday I saw this wren on the ground and it looks a little different. Is this a House Wren? Thanks.
  14. Taken 2-15-2021 on the Los Angeles River in Atwater Village, CA. Is the yellow bird a female Common Yellowthroat? And is the other a Song Sparrow (both photos are the same bird).
  15. Taken 2-15-2021 above the Los Angeles River in Atwater Village, CA. I'm thinking Tree Swallow, crow or raven (can't tell) and maybe a California Gull. If its a California Gull, that's the first one I've identified.
  16. Taken 2-15-2021 above Los Angeles River from Sunnynook Foot Bridge in Atwater Village, CA. Can this be identified?
  17. Taken 2-15-2021 in the afternoon at Lower Scholl Canyon Park in Glendale, CA. The first 2 photos are of the same bird. The 2 birds in the third photo were just about 15 feet away from the first bird
  18. Taken 2-15-2021 afternoon at Lower Scholl Canyon Park in Glendale, CA. Is the first one a Nuttall's woodpecker? And the second photo, I'm not even sure if it's a woodpecker. This is the only shot I have of it and I didn't see or hear it otherwise. There were several Acorn Woodpeckers about 50-75 yards away. But I'm not sure about that brown-rust coloring on the wings and tail -- or if the tail stops at the end of the brown-rust, or continues for a couple more inches with a mottled appearance.
  19. Well I guess I've never seen a Pine Siskin taking a bath before. He looks wonky. And I can see the Dark-eyed Junco now, but it doesn't look like any I've seen around here before. There were several Dark-eyed Junco's about 30 yards away from this one, but here they are and they look like the typical ones I see:
  20. Taken 2-15-2021 afternoon at Lower Scholl Canyon Park in Glendale, CA. The first two are the same bird. I don't think I've seen this one before. For the second two, I can't figure out the bird in the foreground taking a bath.
