  2. I uses these two converter websites, online convert is usually a bit faster but has a total file size limit, cloud converter you can convert multiple at once and you can convert bigger files but there’s a limit to the number of files you can convert each day, you could also use audacity or that other adobe app for audio. Online Convert https://audio.online-convert.com/convert-to-wav Cloud Converter https://cloudconvert.com/wav-converter
  3. Send it as an audio file, wav is preferred.

  7. Pacific Wren? I'm fairly confident about this one, pics taken through a bush and several trees in poor light hence the very grainy and out of focus photos Bird with the orange feets, only photo Did I actually get photos of a Golden-crowned Kinglet?? Another one with the orange feets, probably unidentifiable. Confirm Black-throated Grey Warbler X Hermit Warbler hybrid, I want to make sure it's not another weird hybrid thingy.
  8. Oooooo fun! How about your best photo of a bird on a conifer.

  10. I see the undertail differentiating this from the rock wren now πŸ‘
  11. Makes sense, there was one closer to shore, the head shape had me confused, the other one had a much more blocky head.
  12. Seen in Drakes Bay off Fish Docks in Point Reyes on Saturday, leaning Red-throated. Only photo.
  13. Golden-crowned Kinglet Rose-breasted Groabeak

  15. I don’t think I’ll be able to bird the point, my father was already grumpy about me going out on Saturday, I think the plan was to go to San Francisco after we pack up to be with my grandparents.
  16. I hope there weren’t too many rarities I missed on the point. 😬 Today started out with another morning walk listening to the Golden-crowned Kinglets and what I now realize is a Brown Creeper. After breakfast we headed over to Shafter Grade on the hunt for Hermit Warblers, on the trail we heard an untold number of Wilson’s Warbler, they were all over the place and were by far the most abundant bird around. I also got my first Banana Slug of the trip here! About a third up the trail at 37.99783Β° N, 122.70997Β° W I saw the highlight of the trip, a wonderful male Black-thoated Grey Warbler X Hermit Warbler hybrid, a few hundred feet forward and I saw my first Brown Creeper of the trip. Further along the trail almost exactly where @Connor Cochrane said they were did I see my first Hermit Warbler, I heard at least three in total and there were likely more around and singing. As we got higher up, closer to the top of Bolinas Ridge the environment got cooler and the forest went from being dominated by Coast Redwood to being dominated by Douglas Fir, it was also getting cooler up there. Close to where the Shafter Grade meets the Bolinas Ridge trail I heard what I thought might have been a Cassin’s Vireo however it did not sing again and I was unable to locate the bird, I also saw a mystery flycatcher that I believe is a Western-wood Pewee. As we neared the parking lot I took a detour to the Peters Dam on Kent Lake to scan for any ducks or herons, I found none but did spot two Double-crested Cormorants loafing on the buoys. Back at Samuel P Taylor a short hike along the creek produced my first actual good looks at Chestnut-backed Chickadees this trip as well as a lone Mallard. I also saw several interesting bugs and spiders along the creek. That’s all for today! Happy birding everyone!
  17. Anyone have any ideas about the hoots? @Connor Cochrane @DLecy
  18. I now realize what I was hearing were Purple Finch calls. Thanks everyone!
