    There are no distracting branches in the way, the bird is very close, lighting is good. Detail is good, picture is not grainy.

    Bird is small in the frame, and it’s preening, so many salient ID features are hidden. It’s in decent lighting and in focus…I think it’s appropriately rated.

    Orchard! Look how little it is compared to the HOSP in the last pic!

    It appears that the HOSP is closer to the camera though... which could skew things.

    Both of these statements are true. I’d say it’s an Orchard by size, greenish plumage, structure, bill size, and the fact that OROR are much more likely than HOOR at this date; at least that’s the case in Northern CA. 

    The tail looks concerningly long for OROR in some of the pictures, but it’s just too small to be anything else, IMO. People sometimes confused ORORs with warblers, that’s how small they are, comparatively. 

    Aren’t you brothers @Bird-Boys and @BirdNrd?!
