  1. Taken 4-16-2021 at Puddingstone Lake in San Dimas, CA (Los Angeles County).

    There were several Forster's Terns flying and diving in this area.  I'm not sure what to make of this bird.

    Is this a Forster's Tern, and the dark areas just shadows?

    This was taken at 1:37 pm on a sunny day.  The sun was high in the sky, but on the other side of the subject from the camera.

    Thanks.

    Photos 1 & 2 are of the same bird.

    Photos 3 & 4 are of the same bird.

    Photos 5 & 6 may be of the same bird.  There was a bird moving around in the thickets and these photos were taken within the same minute -- two frames apart.

  3. I know for some of you Bald Eagles are a common sight.  But I saw my first one about a month ago on a nest at San Gabriel Reservoir.  And this is my first one in flight taken yesterday 4-16-2021 at Puddingstone Lake in San Dimas, CA.

  4. Taken 4-11-2021 in the late afternoon at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA.

    Is this a regular ol' domestic Graylag Goose?  I know there's lots of variability, but I haven't seen any pictures of them with a black tip on the bill and a spot on the throat.  And it seems about the same size or a little smaller than the Canada Goose.
