    Not sure which one you’re talking about… but the main two species are Greater and Lesser Scaup with a few of another species mixed in. 

    Catamaran about 15% from right edge, and just below the mid-line.

  2. 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.





  3. I thought that last one was going to be fairly easy.  I hope this next one is much easier.


    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 ???

  4. 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.

    Oh but they are adventures. For us it isn't just about the birds. As you know I'm also into herps and butterflies and mammals and bugs. It is also about the landscape and sometimes even the food which could be anything from restaurants to farmers markets we find along the way. The point is to get out of the house, have a good time even if we don't find our target birds.

    What about the flora?

    Agree with Nashville

    Did you get the Black-throated Green or Lucy's Warbler?

    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


    Nuttall's Woodpecker
