  1. I'm pretty sure when I reviewed all my photos, all Pelagic possibilities were definitely Brandt's. It was surprising how in one shot they can look so dark and slim, and in the next it was obviously a Brandt's.
  2. Thanks. I had some trouble IDing the darker Brandt's vs. Pelagic, which I've never seen before.
  3. This past weekend. Thanks. Laguna Beach. Allen's? La Jolla Cormorants...
  4. Couple more shots of the third one. Is this a Willet?
  5. Thanks. Would the two in the top center with heads down also be Elegant?
  6. Southern California this past weekend. Thanks. Forster's? Least? Reddish Egret? Based on eBird, I think most of these are Elegant...the one in the upper right seems to have a larger bill, but I'm not sure if that's just normal variance in Elegants.
  7. Thanks. Missed the tear-drop eye ring on the last one.
  8. Playa Vista Riparian Corridor in Los Angeles this past weekend. Thanks. House Finch? Warbling Vireo? Orange-crowned Warbler? Townsend's Warbler? Mourning Dove? Western Gull? Hammond's/Dusky?
  9. Thanks. Don't know my western birds at all. Couple more shots but they are similar. I didn't get a very close look, but it looked relatively large for a flycatcher (if that's what it is).
  10. Playa Vista Riparian Corridor in Los Angeles this past weekend. Thanks. Cliff Swallow? California Towhee? Vaux's Swift? Ash-throated Flycatcher? Also Ash-throated Flycatcher? Flycatcher?
  11. Playa Vista Riparian Corridor in Los Angeles this past weekend. Thanks. Anna's for #1-3? Allen's?
  12. Thanks. Is Hudsonian out of range for California? Any particular reason for Long-billed?
  13. This weekend at Bolsa Chica by Los Angeles, CA. Thanks. Black-bellied Plovers? Marbled Godwits? Willet? Dowitchers?
  14. Southern California today. Thanks.
  15. Thanks! Any particular reason why? I think I was read somewhere that a Rusty would have a bigger bill?
  16. Mid-Michigan yesterday. Same bird in all pictures. Not sure how to tell it apart from Brewer's. Thanks.
  17. Mid-Michigan today. Same birds in both pictures. Thanks.
  18. Mid-Michigan today. Swallow-type bird that looked dark throughout. Thanks.
  19. Whiting Overlook in Midland. We had a Ross's at the same location about a week ago, but four seems like a lot for here.
  20. Same bird in all the photos. Mid-Michigan today. The bills looked slightly bigger in one of the flight shots, but overall the bills looked pretty small. The birds also looked relatively small compared to the Canada Geese in the background. Thanks.
  21. Are these all Bald? Mid-Michigan today. Thanks.
