  1. Thanks for the ID and information.
  2. I photographed this bird on 7/8 on the shore of Lake Hodges in So Cal. The light was terrible so the photo is pretty bad. I think it is a juvenile Blue Grosbeak. Is that right?
  3. Saw this bird on southern California coast last week. There are some Orange-crowned Warblers in the area but this does not match the description or photos in iBirdPro for that species. Looks like it may be a finch but again nothing in iBirdPro matches.
  4. This bird was seen on the Pacific coast in southern California at La Jolla. Can't find a match using iBirdPro.
  5. Duck seen this morning at Lake Hodges in So. Cal. Was in the company of a male mallard. Is this a female mallard?
  6. I always have trouble with sparrows, but this bill does not look like a sparrow. I can't find a good match. See along the shore of Lake Hodges in Southern California. The color out of the camera looks a bit cool to me so there is a second one that is warmer and may be a better color representation.
  7. These birds were perched together in the grasslands of So. Cal near Ramona. I thought the first one was a cowbird but its beak does not match. The second may be some type of sparrow but I cannot find a match.
  8. I believe this is a Say's Phoebe (lots of them here) but I am a bit thrown off by the blue color. Taken near Lake Hodges in Southern California.
  9. House finch it is. Thanks for the ID.
  10. Seen in the Ramona Grasslands in SoCal. I think it's a Vesper Sparrow, but sparrows are my nemesis.
  11. This bird was seen in SoCal grasslands today. I think it is an immature white-crowned sparrow. Is that right?
  12. Thanks everyone for the ID! I am surprised since the bird does not have a trace of vermilion and vermilion flycatchers are uncommon in this area. Maybe there are more and we misidentify them. It's great to have so many experts available via this site.
  13. It's a Hotspot in eBird. Look for "Ramona Grasslands Preserve". The hotspots "Ramona Grasslands--Old Survey Road 97" and "Rangeland Road" are also around the grasslands.
  14. This bird was photographed a few days ago in the Ramona Grasslands. I can't find a good fit in iBird Pro, but it may be a Western Wood-Pewee. Estimate its size at about 5".
  15. I am not sure what you mean by intergrades, but Red-shafted Northern Flickers are seen in this area.
  16. I did not get a good look at this bird, but I think it may be a Red-shafted Northern Flickr. Seen in the Ramona Grasslands in Southern California.
  17. FYI, Hal Cohen of Borrego Hawk Watch agrees.
