  1. It has dark patagials, tail pattern, GISS, and if you zoom in, especially on the second photo, you can see that there are no heavy streaks on the upper breast as there would be in an immature RSHA or BWHA. If it were an adult of either of those two species, there would be a different pattern altogether.
  2. The “goshawk” is a Red-tailed Hawk. I think the second one is a Red-shouldered Hawk.
  3. Just a quick check of my local trail https://ebird.org/checklist/S140055995
  4. Also, sharp-shinned are all gone by now. It’s way too late for one in SoCal.
  5. Adult Black-bellied Plover molting from winter(basic) plumage to breeding/summer(alternate) plumage.
  6. Huh. I was told there’s a significant difference there-and on the 3 definite rufous I’ve seen, it was noticeable. I’ll take your word for it though.
  7. Why can’t we just make it one week from when the person chooses a winner and new topic?
  8. Here’s yesterdays list https://ebird.org/checklist/S139964341
  9. Yesterday: Definitely the Black and White warbler
  10. Oof birdie 🐦 #376: 🟥🟥🟥🟩⬛⬛ https://birdiegame.net/
  11. From yesterday: Self found 1st spring/2y Black-and-white Warbler!
  12. Bird 1. Allen’s Hummingbird for two reasons: It’s getting very late for Rufous in coastal SoCal, Allen’s is resident in the area. Also, a rufous would have a more contrastingly bold white throat/chin patch. Bird 2. Female/immature male Anna’s Hummingbird. Bird 3. Adult male Anna’s Hummingbird.
  13. Thanks, this is where I got confused before. So in this case, 1st spring and second year mean the same thing? And I can call it 1st spring or no?
  14. @Snake FingersWhen do we have until to post a photo? I don’t have any good ones but I’ll try this week.
  15. It’s definitely one of the more “common” eastern vagrants, but it’s still a vagrant and rarity pretty much anywhere on the west coast. Less common now than in winter or fall, though. The date that this bird is here is probably more impressive be than the species being here in the first place.
