  1. Thanks Tony. That Shoveler was quite a ways off, but something about it didn't look like a mallard (of which there were a lot) to my naked eye -- maybe the way it was flying.
  2. Taken 11-15-2020 afternoon at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA. These are new species for me, so I want to confirm my IDs. Blue-gray Gnatcatcher Downy Woodpecker Northern Shoveler Thanks.
  3. Taken 11-11-2020 late afternoon at the Los Angeles River near Glendale Blvd bridge, Atwater Village. There were many of these little birds, like swifts, flying all around staying in one general area. I'm going to have to come up with a strategy for getting a better shot, but I'm sure you all can ID them from these photos.
  4. Taken 11-11-2020 late afternoon at the Los Angeles River near Glendale Blvd bridge in Atwater Village. Please confirm if my identifications are correct. 1, 2 -- Lincoln's Sparrow 3 -- Greater Yellowlegs 4 -- juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron 5 -- Rock Pigeons 6 -- unspotted Spotted Sandpiper
  5. Good job Colton. I figured it would be easy enough for someone with feeders.
  6. How about 3 (or more) species of passerines in one shot.
  7. Taken 11-3-2020 in the late afternoon at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserved in Van Nuys, CA. Is this a Ruby-crowned Kinglet?
  8. Thanks everyone. Good to know about juvenile perching birds.
  9. Taken 10-30-2020 in Glendale, CA (backyard). Are these Pine Siskins? They may have been at my feeders a couple days before I took these shots. If so I probably thought they were small, juvenile House Finches when I glanced out there. It took me a long time to come up with Pine Siskin. When I tried using the Search feature on What Bird, the closest I could come was a juvenile Yellow-rumped Warbler. But the bill was wrong and no eye-ring and the yellow was in the wings instead of on the sides. I finally went by brute force and began looking through every perching and clinging bird in California and finally came to my conclusion of it being a Pine Siskin. Any agreement?
  10. Ah yes. I see that they are in the same genus as most Sandpipers. Thanks akandula.
  11. My friend took this photo with her phone last Sunday Nov. 1 at Pismo Beach CA. I'm not good with shorebirds. Are they a species of Sandpiper, or a Sanderling?
  12. Taken 10-30-2020 and last one 11-4-2020 in Glendale, CA (backyard). Are these all Lesser Goldfinches?
  13. Is that an Osprey to the left of the nest? That would be crazy. The stance looks good, but the bill doesn't -- unless its head is cocked to the right.
  14. Thank you both Conner and Tony. Would you be able to say whether these are females, juvenile, immature?
  15. Taken 10-29-2020 in late afternoon in Glendale, CA. Is this a female Audobon's Yellow-rumped Warbler? Thanks.
  16. Osprey taken 10-12-2020 at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA.
