  1. Seen at Lake Hodges in Southern California. I think it's a spotted sandpiper but it has no spots. Juvenile?
  2. Yes, a juvenile without the yellow throat. Thanks.
  3. Seen on the shore of Lake Hodges in southern California.
  4. At first I thought this was a sandpiper but could not find a fit. Looked at everything in in iBird Pro but could not find a fit. A female that does not show up in the top level search?
  5. Thanks! That's the second time I missed that ID.
  6. I always have trouble with sparrows. Seen on 8/21 in the Ramona Grasslands (Southern Cal).
  7. Saw this bird in the grasslands of southern California near Ramona today. It was swooping around close to the ground and appeared to be hunting until a raven chased it. I got a poor photo as it went into a tree to land. Never got a better look at it. I also include a blurry photo that shows its size relative to the raven. Sorry about the poor quality of the photos.
  8. I was sitting quietly on the edge of the lake at water level (got my butt wet) and the group of birds approached very close, within a few feet. If you sit quietly for long enough they get used to you. Then it was easy to get frame filling shots.
  9. Thanks everyone for the ID. No red neck threw me off, but this is non-breeding, which is a good match. Dave
  10. At least it's unknown to me. See at a freshwater lake in southern California. Was in a group of 6.
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. This bird was seen on the Pacific coast in southern California at La Jolla. Can't find a match using iBirdPro.
  14. Duck seen this morning at Lake Hodges in So. Cal. Was in the company of a male mallard. Is this a female mallard?
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
