  1. Yep, definitely seems to be a Goldfinch to me. White wing bars in the first photo and white undertail Coverts in the others.
  2. There is so many species I would love to see that I can't list them all. My biggest nemesis birds are: Swamp Sparrow, Royal Tern, Semipalmated Sandpiper, Blackpoll Warbler, Clay-colored Sparrow, Pacific Golden Plover, and Northern Saw-whet Owl. My most likely lifers to come are: the Pelagic species (going on my first on in less than a week), Mountain Plover, Long-tailed Duck, and Barred Owl.
  3. it's not too far out of their range, they breed about 60 miles to the west
  4. That first bird is really confusing me! Is there any more photos of it? Not a Western Tanager because of bill shape and the fact one hasn't been seen there since 2010. I'm wondering if it could be a weird American Goldfinch.
  5. 2 and 3 are Chipping Sparrows. The first bird is confusing me, it has a finch like bill but is so yellow,
  6. This one's stumped me, I'm not sure what it is. I'm usually good at separating between BCHU and ANHU, but this one is causing me some trouble. Structurally, it feels more like ANHU, but visually it seems more like BCHU with those buffy flanks. Tail seems short for BCHU.
  7. It's a Pac, the new photos clearly show that. I believe so at least
  8. Tough bird, but I don't think so. Very circular eyering, small bill with a steep forehead, contrasting wing panels, and a short primary projection. I'd guess Least but the back of camera photo makes it very hard.
  9. House Finch, note the stubby bill and the streaky brown coloration.
  10. Another couple photos from my trip! https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/372181841
  11. I had these as Baird's Sandpipers on ebird, but then they got pushed back as Western Sands. The reviewer shared these photos with several people who also said they were Western, but I can't seem to figure out why these are Westerns and not Baird's. Could someone explain why these are Western?
  12. 1-3 are Blackburnian I want to say that 4 and 5 are Bay-breasted, but I'm not sure.
  13. Western refers to their breeding range, as they breed farther to west than Yellow Palm Warblers do.
  14. That's the Subspecies. There is both Yellow and Western Palm Warblers.
  15. When the camera focuses on the wrong thing!
