  1. Yeah, the loud bird singing a sweet song throughout the recording is a Summer Tanager. No REVI at 0:39, that's just a Merlin error. As far as the bird making the descending "oh" call, it's hard to tell given how quiet it is, but I actually think it's probably the pheasant as well.
  2. Looks like a Black Tern in basic (nonbreeding) plumage to me.

  4. @IKLland Your BLGR photo is up on the ebird home page
  5. One is either a Song Sparrow or a Spotted Towhee, leaning towards Song Sparrow. Very weird song in any case. Two is definitely a MacGillivray's though!

  8. 1. Costa's Hummingbird 2. I think Brown-crested Flycatcher 3. Black-chinned Hummingbird 4. Vermillion Flycatcher 5. Probably Black-chinned Hummingbird

  10. I did the same, didn't read through that proposal closely enough. Didn't realize they were trying for a three way split!

  12. Looks like a Mottled duck to me. Don't think we can 100% rule out a hybrid from just this angle though.
  13. Looks like the 2024 AOS proposals are out! 2024 Proposals - American Ornithological Society (americanornithology.org) I'm curious about everyone's thoughts on the submitted proposals. I believe the ones listed below are the ones that will affect us here in the ABA area. I'm very interested in which ones will pass! 1. The split of Cory's Shearwater into two species. (Scopoli's Shearwater and Cory's Shearwater) 2. The split of Herring Gull (European as one species and Smithsonian/Vega as another) 3. Split Brown Booby into two species (into Brewster's and Brown) 4. The lump of Hoary and Common Redpoll 5. The Split of Green-winged Teal (Common Teal and American Green-winged Teal) 6. The split of Red-shouldered Hawk (Lineatus/extimus as one species and elegans as another) 7. The split of American Pipit (rubescens and japonicus)
  14. I'd recognize that back anywhere! birdie 🐦 #751: πŸŸ©β¬›β¬›β¬›β¬›β¬› https://birdiegame.net/
  15. Empid looks like Willow/Alder to me.
  16. There's a lot of birds I'm jealous of on that list! Your swallow spuh is a Purple Martin.
  17. I probably shouldn't be entering this conversation as I have very little experience with BWHAs or the Eastern RSHA subspecies, but I'd call that a Broad-winged if I saw it here in the west. I'm not sure if molt pattern could say anything about this ID, but I do know that practically every spring BWHA record from the California and Nevada deserts are of SY birds molting their inner primaries, much like this bird. I'll also say this bird looks pretty much identical to the bird I saw in the desert this spring and called a BWHA.
  18. Probably my best ever photo of a Calliope!!! ML620182688 - Calliope Hummingbird - Macaulay Library
  19. That's crazy! Seems like it's been a pretty good year for BBWA in the state this spring given there's been 4-5 in the past month! Hopefully another shows up when you can chase it!
  20. 4th state record Veery from my desert trip.
  21. Self-found forth county record American Redstart for Sierra County. Just wish I could have gotten a better photo!!!
