  1. So for the 3rd and 4th photos, are all the birds on the water and on the shore the same species, or a mix of the two species?
  2. Taken on 2-26-2021 in the afternoon to sundown at Puddingstone Lake in San Dimas (Los Angeles County), CA I need help with gulls, please.
  3. Jefferson, I think they are the same bird, but possibly not. The 5 shots I have before the original photo I posted were over water. Then the 3 shots in sequence. It would be odd that I would have just a single shot of a swallow in flight. Unfortunately my camera only records the time to the minute, not the second. Here are a couple shots taken in the following minute:
  4. The sun had just set. Here are the two photos immediately following -- which are of the same bird. It looks like it has a dark chin/throat, but lighting.... And then 3 other photos that were taken of other birds before and after -- which are Violet Green. Violet-Green is a first for me.
  5. Ha ha! You guys are right. I had the head at the wrong end. There were swallow there flying around.
  6. Taken on 2-26-2021 at Puddingstone Lake in San Dimas (Los Angeles County), CA. This is the only photo I have of it, and I don't think I saw any other birds like it that day -- unless it's some bird carrying a stick.
  7. Taken on 3-2-2021 above the Los Angeles River near Newell Street in Elysian Valley. Is this bird identifiable?
  8. Taken 3-2-2021 above the Los Angeles River at Newell Street in Elysian Valley. I'm thinking this is an Orange-crowned Warbler, but not confident. I think all four photos are the same bird, but could possibly be two birds. It was moving around quite a bit and hard to get a shot before it moved again. I lost sight of it a couple times. There was at least one other bird in the tree, which was a YRWA, so I was seeing movement from more than one place.
  9. 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.
  10. Thanks everyone for your comments. Sorry if my post was not written clearly.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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?
  15. 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?
  16. Thanks everyone. I spent some time trying to figure out what else they could be, but couldn't come up with anything.
  17. 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.
  18. 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 ?
  19. Taken 2-27-2021 above the Los Angeles River near Fletcher Drive bridge in Atwater Village, CA. What are these white pigeons?
