  1. Really awesome -- and they're all in focus! Great job. What are the birds in the background? Or is that pumice from an erupting volcano?
  2. Me neither. And I had a busy week last week and missed the Osprey. You all posted lots of great photos though.
  3. I missed last week's quiz, but I'm ready for the next one.
  4. I just saw a Zone-tailed Hawk for the first time, and it was right over my house in Glendale, CA.
  5. Ross's Goose on 1-21-2022 at Santa Fe Dam Rec Area, Irwindale, CA
  6. Catamaran about 15% from right edge, and just below the mid-line.
  7. That's better, but the best I can say is that I think they are ducks. I see one that looks like a catamaran -- what is that?
  8. I can't even identify one species in that tiny image.
  9. @IKLland Thanks, I never knew how to do that either.
  10. That's great Chris! You pick the next challenge.
  11. Taken on 1-5-2022 in the afternoon on the Los Angeles River between Burbank Channel confluence and the Riverside Dr. bridge in Glendale, CA. I usually don't attempt to ID immature gulls (and I think this is one). There were just two gulls standing in the water (a Western and this one) and I'm just curious what this is. I have a couple guesses, but could be way off. I looked away to photograph some other birds and was going to come back to this one to get better shots, but when I turned back it was gone.
  12. I thought that last one was going to be fairly easy. I hope this next one is much easier. Challenge: A photo containing at least 2 different species whose common names start with a hyphenated descriptor that is composed of first a color and second a body part. E.g. -- Black-throated ??? and Ruby-crowned ???
  13. Congratulations! I was about to cancel this challenge and start a new one. Your turn to come up with the next challenge.
  14. Taken in the late afternoon over the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. I identified several White-throated Swifts and Northern Rough-winged Swallows. This was the only one that looked different. The tail looks like Barn Swallow, but I'm not sure that the rest of it does.
  15. Taken in the late afternoon over the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA.
  16. Thanks all. That's cool I got a lifer on Dec. 31st.
  17. Taken on 12-31-2021 at Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, San Marino, CA. I have never identified a Purple Finch before, but I'm thinking this looks like one.
