  1. Taken on 9-3-2021 in the late afternoon at the Los Angeles River in Atwater Village, CA. I'm not sure what I've got here.
  2. Wow, this got a lot of action. Thanks everyone. I did see a Chipping Sparrow in the same area shortly before this one. I thought this one could be a CHSP, but didn't feel like I could see enough to ID it.
  3. Taken on 9-1-2021 in the late afternoon at Hahamongna Watershed Park near JPL in La Canada-Flintridge, CA. I have one more bird to ID from my excursion yesterday. The light was from the opposite side. Is this identifiable?
  4. Taken at dusk on 9-1-2021 at Hahamongna Watershed Park near JPL in La Canada-Flintridge, CA. There were at least 3 hummingbirds coming and going from the same branches -- seemed to be hanging out together. It was dusk and I couldn't see them very well but they all seemed similar in appearance and behavior. I assume these are Anna's, but at least one of them has a broad, squared tail which I'm not used to seeing on Anna's. Are these photos good enough to ID them? All photos were lightened 35%. Thanks.
  5. Thanks everyone. Does anyone have an explanation for the tiered tail feathers?
  6. Taken at dusk on 9-1-2021 at Hahamongna Watershed Park near JPL in La Canada-Flintridge, CA. I would call this a Cassin's Kingbird, except the tail and/or wing feathers have me befuddled. Edit: both images were lightened 25%
  7. Taken on 9-1-2021 in the late afternoon at Hahamongna Watershed Park near JPL in La Canada-Flintridge, CA. I've never seen a Shrike before. Based on range I would say this is a Loggerhead Shrike, but I want to make sure. Thanks.
  8. Last week was a whirlwind for me. I missed out on posting a Turkey Vulture. But I'm back with a Grebe.
  9. Taken on 7-25-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk. As I mentioned before, there were well over 100 Mallards on this day -- mostly juveniles. These two ducks seem to look different from most of the others. I'm not sure if they are just Mallards that are maybe younger than most of the other juveniles, or if they are something else.
  10. Taken on 7-25-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk. There were well over 100 Mallards, mostly juveniles, and then there was this one duck with a white face. Is this just a domestic Mallard, or what?
  11. Taken on 7-25-2021 at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk on the Los Angeles River. What is the small bird at the right? There were about 100 Black-necked Stilts, 5 Greater Yellowlegs and this one small wading bird.
  12. This is easy. I only have one photo of a Ring-necked Duck.
  13. I forgot to submit a Mourning Dove photo last week -- but it wouldn't have been as good as most that were submitted. So I'll submit this week's before I forget. Bullock's Oriole
  14. For now I've just changed it to Hawk sp. (without photos) until I figure out what to do.
  15. The problem is when I try to change it to Cooper's/Sharp-shinned it shows that as RARE. So the reviewer will get it again and tell me its a Cooper's.
  16. The reviewer said that on eBird there are no observations of a Sharp-shinned Hawk in Los Angeles County in July. That is the only reason given for identifying it as a Cooper's Hawk. I think I will change my observation to Cooper's/Sharp-shinned.
  17. When I uploaded my checklist to eBird, it flagged the SSHA as rare for the date and location.
