  1. Oh, I thought crows were everywhere all the time.
  2. Yes, that why the subject line says TBN Photo Challenge. At least everyone should have a chance to see crows and ravens.
  3. How about a photo with a Crow and a Raven -- identifiable by consensus, not just by the claim of the photographer. So no saying that blurry black thing, in the background of a murder of crows, is a raven.
  4. Do Ruddy Ducks count? Today 2-7-2021 at Hansen Dam, Los Angeles, CA Common Mergansers Northern Shovelers Ruddy Ducks
  5. Taken 2-6-2021 in afternoon on the Los Angeles River near North Atwater Park, Atwater Village, CA. Are all three of these Cinnamon Teal? The image is upsized to 300% and lightened.
  6. Taken 2-5-2021 in the morning in Glendale, CA. This is a new bird at my feeder. When I saw it I thought it was some kind of wren. But after trying to ID the photos, I come up with Orange-crowned Warbler -- although the bill seems to be a bit long. All my other photos of OCWAs have been perched in trees. If this is an OCWA, its the first time I've seen one at a feeder and it looks different.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. Yeah I meant the photo. I couldn't tell what all was in the background.
  13. The pond comes through again! That Avocet was hard to see. You're up.
  14. 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
  15. A photo containing at least 3 different species whose common name starts with the word "American."
  16. I've got a good one for the next challenge if that's okay.
  17. Two weeks is up and I'm the only one that submitted a photo of "birds of prey."
  18. 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.
  19. I can flyyyyyyy...like a bird! Yeah, I see.
  20. Do you know where I can find Spanx for geese?
  21. Hang in there Daisy....just 3 more days of training and we get our Bird of Prey certificate!
  22. 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
