  1. You KNOW?! 😮 Wow, you must see a lot of warblers.
  2. I don't know if this is what it was doing since there are no photos or videos, but in a lot of birds rapidly flapping wings is begging behavior seen in females (during courtship) and juveniles. The tail twitching seems weird, though.
  3. Cactus Wren? If that's not it, what was the main color of the bird and what was the color of the tail? Did you note shape and color of the bill? Any other markings on the face or wings?
  4. Chipping Sparrow (dark eyeline and lores, reddish cap, pink bill) in nonbreeding plumage, I believe.
  5. Too brown for an Orange-crowned. Pretty sure it's a Common Yellowthroat.
  6. That is a Tennessee Warbler. Note the lack of wingbars, the dark eyeline, and the white undertail coverts.
  7. Googling is probably the easiest way. I found this list: https://wildlife.ca.gov/conservation/laboratories/wildlife-investigations/rehab/facilities
  8. Blackpoll is correct. Could be a nonbreeding female or an immature.
  9. Yep, it's a Bushtit, but it doesn't look very young to me. Are you a licensed wildlife rehabber? If not, you need to take it to one or at least call one to find out what to do.
  10. Can anyone confirm Swainson's? I THOUGHT I saw buffy spectacles on this guy (with my bins), but I was looking and taking photos through pine needles and branches... One original and one edited:
  11. Philadelphia Vireo from this evening. Saw two together in one tree! ☺️
  12. Orange-crowned Warbler. Note the dark eyeline that splits the eyering and the faint streaking on the breast.
  13. This is a Pine Siskin. Note the very pointy bill and yellow in the wing.
  14. Mourning Dove (in sunset lighting) and Downy Woodpecker (small bill and spots on white tail feathers).
  15. Veery with the light brown spots on the breast. EDIT: I agree with akandula! As usual!
  16. Short bill, black spots on white tail feathers, short shoulder spur, small size compared to suet feeder -- no doubt a Downy.
