  1. 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
  2. Good job Colton. I figured it would be easy enough for someone with feeders.
  3. How about 3 (or more) species of passerines in one shot.
  4. Taken 11-3-2020 in the late afternoon at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserved in Van Nuys, CA. Is this a Ruby-crowned Kinglet?
  5. Thanks everyone. Good to know about juvenile perching birds.
  6. 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?
  7. Ah yes. I see that they are in the same genus as most Sandpipers. Thanks akandula.
  8. 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?
  9. Taken 10-30-2020 and last one 11-4-2020 in Glendale, CA (backyard). Are these all Lesser Goldfinches?
  10. 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.
  11. Thank you both Conner and Tony. Would you be able to say whether these are females, juvenile, immature?
  12. Taken 10-29-2020 in late afternoon in Glendale, CA. Is this a female Audobon's Yellow-rumped Warbler? Thanks.
  13. Osprey taken 10-12-2020 at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA.
  14. Since I don't have a link to anything on ebird, I'm doing just one -- which I took yesterday at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve.
  15. Taken 10-30-2020 late afternoon in Glendale, CA. I'm coming up with juvenile American Goldfinch, but not confident.
  16. Taken 10-12-2020 in the late afternoon at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA. The first 3 photos were taken in the same sequence. 1 and 2 are definitely one and the same bird. The last 3 photos were taken about 15 minutes later, from the same place and pointing the same direction, and definitely a single bird. I believe the Grebe in the first 2 photos is the same bird as the one in the last 3 photos. If I remember correctly there was only one adult Grebe in the area. I threw in the 3rd photo to see if it is a juvenile Grebe. The gull was in all 6 photos before cropping. If I only had photos 1 and 5, I would think it was a Clark's Grebe. But the other photos suggest a Western Grebe. Although it could have have characteristics of both. Maybe a hybrid? What's the story here? It is just the effect of the lighting giving me problems?
  17. Taken 10-12-2020 in the late afternoon at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA. Is this a Green Heron?
  18. Is the mystery bird rolled on its side so that its underparts are facing the camera?
