  1. Taken 1-30-2021 in the afternoon at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve, Van Nuys, CA. The eBird charts for this hotspot show that there have not been any observations of Rufous Hummingbird between the 2nd week of Dec. and the 1st week of Feb. (1900-2021). Also the charts indicate a high frequency of observations of Allen's Hummingbird in all 52 weeks of the year. Even so, if the species of this bird cannot be confidently identified by these photos, is it best to ID it as Rufous/Allen's?
  2. I was considering Yellow Warbler because I wasn't sure that there was a white eye-ring. But everything else looks good for Orange-crowned. Thanks.
  3. Taken 1-30-2021 in the afternoon at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA. I'm debating between Yellow Warbler and Orange-crowned Warbler.
  4. Taken 1-30-2021 in late afternoon at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA. I believe these are Hooded Mergansers, but haven't photographed them in flight before.
  5. Taken 1-30-2021 at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA. These photos were taken at dusk and I had to lighten them up quite a bit. Is it possible to identify the species?
  6. Yeah I meant the photo. I couldn't tell what all was in the background.
  7. The pond comes through again! That Avocet was hard to see. You're up.
  8. Thanks everyone. Last week I submitted my first two complete checklists to eBird, and just submitted my 3rd for this excursion. https://ebird.org/profile/MjAzMjMzNg/US-CA-037
  9. A photo containing at least 3 different species whose common name starts with the word "American."
  10. I've got a good one for the next challenge if that's okay.
  11. Two weeks is up and I'm the only one that submitted a photo of "birds of prey."
  12. Taken on 1-24-2021 late afternoon on the Los Angeles River near Sunnynook Foot Bridge in Atwater Village, CA. Is the woodpecker a female Nuttall's? The hawk photos are the same bird -- which flew about 100 yards to another tree. Is this a Red-Shouldered? Thanks.
  13. I can flyyyyyyy...like a bird! Yeah, I see.
  14. Do you know where I can find Spanx for geese?
  15. Hang in there Daisy....just 3 more days of training and we get our Bird of Prey certificate!
  16. Taken 1-17-2021 in the afternoon on the Los Angeles River in the Sepulveda Basin, Van Nuys, CA. 1) What is the duck at the bottom right? I can't figure out the white stripe. 2) Are these Least Sandpipers? 3) Don't know 4) I think its the same bird as #3
  17. Taken 1-19-2021 in the afternoon above Los Angeles River, near Red Car pedestrian bridge, Atwater Village, CA. Are both of these Cooper's Hawks?
  18. Taken 1-15-2021 late afternoon above the Los Angeles River near Sunnynook Foot Bridge, Atwater Village, CA. What gulls are these? The first two are the same bird, and the second two are the same bird.
  19. Taken on 1-15-2021 late afternoon on above Los Angeles River, Atwater Village, CA. I'm thinking Sharpie, but not confident.
  20. Taken 2021-01-15 at dusk above the Hyperion Ave bridge over Los Angeles River, Atwater Village, CA. Would this be a White-faced Ibis?
  21. Taken 1-19-2021 late afternoon on the Los Angeles River upstream of Hyperion Ave Bridge, Atwater Village, CA. Are these both Mallards?
