  1. Thanks all. That's cool I got a lifer on Dec. 31st.
  2. 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.
  3. Taken on 12-28-2021 at Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, San Marino, CA. Can this bird be identified?
  4. Taken on 12-28-2021 at Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, San Marino, CA. There were a few Townsend's in the same tree, but this bird looks rather pale for a Townsend's.
  5. Yellow-chevroned Parakeet -- another first taken yesterday at Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens.
  6. Okay, I wasn't sure about the black on the chin and forehead. Is that a male with the black starting to come in, or did it get into something while foraging?
  7. I got Lucy's. I don't think I have a Black-throated Green. I think they are all Townsend's. I got the following species in the same tree: Black-throated Gray Warbler Lucy's Warbler Nashville Warbler Townsend's Warbler Yellow-rumped (Audubon's) Warbler Ruby-crowned Kinglet Bushtit Nuttall's Woodpecker
  8. Taken 12-28-2021 at Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino (Los Angeles Co.), CA. I think I know what these are, but I want to hear it from you. The first two photos are of the same individual. The second two photos are of the same individual. Whether it is just one bird or two, I don't know. If two, I think both are the same species.
  9. Lucy's Warbler taken today 12-28-2021 at Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, San Marino, CA.
  10. Doesn't that count as 600 new Lifers?
  11. Taken on 12-10-2021 at Silverlake Reservoir in Silverlake (Los Angeles), CA. The three photos of the male are all the same bird. I believe this is a Greater Scaup, but would like confirmation. I'm not sure about the female (this is the only angle I have of it).
  12. Congrats on the lifers. That's a lot.
  13. I didn't think it was cold, but I guess the bird did.
  14. Taken just after sunset on 12-20-2021 at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA. This group of about 20 sparrows was going between the ground and a tree. I think the photos I have all look like the same species, but I'm having some indecision about what that is. The attached photos are of different birds.
  15. Taken on 12-20-2021 at Sepulveda Basin in the Haskell Creek floodplain, Van Nuys, CA. Would this be a Lincoln's Sparrow?
  16. I'm not used to seeing such a rolly-polly Bewick's Wren. And that white eyebrow looked goofy too. Thanks all.
  17. Taken on 12-20-2021 at dusk at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Van Nuys, CA.
  18. Johnd said a red headed duck, not a Redhead. Canvasback is a red headed duck.
  19. Me too -- although it doesn't seem right.
  20. The scaups I saw on 3-24-2021 were the first scaups I had ever seen. Nice to know I got both a Greater and Lesser for the first time on that day.
  21. #3 is why I asked if the species were limited to North America. I ended up throwing a hail mary on that one. It must be a hybrid.
