  1. I agree that it looks good for rufina, I have lots of experience in picking out montana and a few merrili birds from the local heermanni here in Sacramento, and that bird would stand out as being quite different from the subspecies I am used to seeing.
  2. I had an absolutely insane day at the Outer Point in Marin yesterday! Had 17 warbler species, plus three Clay-colored Sparrows, an Orchard Oriole, and a probable Chimney Swift! The best day of birding that I have ever experienced! https://ebird.org/tripreport/77844
  3. Nice! It's getting late for OSFL, at least up here.
  4. Happy birthday! Good luck tomorrow!!! Find something really rare so I can chase it on Sunday!
  5. I'm probably not the best person to ask, as I've never seen a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak, but that upper mandible is pink, which strongly points to Rose-breasted. Black-headed always has a dark upper mandible. You can't see the breast streaking on this bird through, which is too bad. I'd say you're fine calling this Rose-breasted, but if I were you I'd wait for someone else to agree with me first.
  6. Was the sparrow self found? I haven't seen any recent reports in Orange that I'm aware of.
  7. The sparrow is definitely Vesper, and I'm leaning towards Rose-breasted on the Grosbeak. Still want to see the real pictures first.
  8. Willow Flycatcher https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/488728311 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/488728271
  9. I think that we might need to wait for real photos on this bird. I can't even tell if it's a truly a Grosbeak from these given the odd molt this bird is in. Is the upper mandible pink on this bird?
  10. Looks decent for Bullocks to me, that's what I'd call it here in California. It seems very drab. I don't have much experience with Baltimore though.
  11. I think this is a Warbling Vireo. They sing much more often than warblers during fall migration, and it sounds right for the species.
  12. I can't access the recordings. Maybe upload the recording to ebird as Passerine spuh than link the recording or checklist here.
  13. This was a photo nemesis of mine. Lesser Yellowlegs!
  14. Man! I didn't realize that you had around 75 Common Terns on your Pelagic! That's a ton!
  15. No, they all just look like Least to me.
  16. That bill, it looks small, and I think the tail/rump is longer than it would be on Black.
  17. Did the call out Arctic on your pelagic today? You don't usually see a lot of Sterna on these pelagics.
