  1. I think Sooty can pretty safely be ruled out, it fits Ruffed perfectly IMO. Sooty would appear darker I believe.

  3. Amazing day in the Sierra Nevadas. Lots of birds, especially woodpeckers. I don't know of many places in the mountains I've had thirty-one woodpeckers of seven species on one list before. Got good looks at most everything on the checklist as well, which doesn't always happen. Having good looks at Mountain Quail was super fun as well! https://ebird.org/checklist/S140263438
  4. Hit 306 species this morning with a Williamson's Sapsucker. Sitting 15 species ahead of my best year at this time. Not a bad year list at all, especially since I haven't left California.
  5. I was about to say the same thing, definitely not a BTYW
  6. Nice! I missed both EAKI entirely today. Would have been a state bird for me as well. I must have driven past Mendoza and the other areas they were seen at least five times today without any luck!
  7. Actually looks like a Common Loon to me. Hard to tell but the color pattern and shape seem better for COLO to me.
  8. I'd probably agree with Spotted Owl, hard to tell for sure though. The birds you are talking about that are robin-like but higher on the spectrograph are at least two Pacific-slope Flycatchers singing.
  9. Conditions on the OP are looking great today! @MichaelLong Get out there if possible, though I know it's hard to bird much when packing up from camping. I'm on my way there right now.
  10. The left finch in the bottom photo looks like a Cassin's Finch to me. I'm not sure how expected they are though.
  11. I can say with 100% confidence this was a Coot, and a white-fronted one at that!
  12. I've showed these photos to a lot of the other birders I've run into down in the desert over the past couple days, many of whom are super well known California birders, and every single person has said Brown-crested for this bird. Some of these people have been birding the desert close to yearly for decades.
  13. I'm pretty sure it's a Coot, as it's light out now and it's still singing. I can say with confidence it's not a SPOW, I'm very familiar with their calls and that would be an absolutely crazy bird to have in Death Valley!
  14. Right now at Shoshone in San Bernardino county. I'm trying to sleep and this bird keeps calling right outside my tent, and it's bugging me that I can't decide what it is. Thinking maybe a American Coot or possibly a Long-eared Owl. Bird Spuh, Shoshone, May 27th.wav
  15. Best bird today, did a ton of driving and not much time was left for birding.
  16. What are everyone's thoughts on this Myiarchus? I thought possibly Brown-crested but that would be unusual in this area of San Bernardino (Barstow Community colllege). No shots of the underside of the tail sadly. Seen a couple hours ago.

  18. Just at a quick glance 1. SESA 2. SESA or WESA (seems dull for WESA, plus bill has a lobe at the tip. Feels like a WESA to me though) 3. Not comfortable calling it anything, leaning SESA 4. SESA 5. SESA 6. SESA with one LESA 7. WRSA 8. SESA and two LESA 9. Not sure, thinking a really bright SESA 10. Four WIPH 11. Yes WRSA 12. Yes WRSA 13. Unidentifiable, probably SESA 14. WRSA 15. WRSA
  19. Nelson's Sparrow in flight
