  3. Good Morning, I saw this one a few days ago in South Orange County, CA. I believe it is a Northern Harrier. Sorry for the poor photo quality, it was the one day I went without the good camera and only had my iPhone. I saw this one a few days ago in South Orange County, CA. I believe it is a Northern Harrier.
  4. I missed this one in my South Orange Count post. Taken about two weeks in Rancho Santa Margarita (Southern California). I'm pretty sure it's a Nuttall's, but since my last posts I'm only correct about 30% of the time.
  5. All taken this past weekend in Boulder City, NV. Fox Sparrow? House Sparrow? House Sparrow? The Orange throws me off, but I think it is a House Ross's Goose? Northern Shoveler? To me, in this picture it didn't look like one, but there were a lot in this area. Unknown Swallow Eurasian Collard-Dove Costa Hummingbird
  6. Here are a few. I'm trying to get better with terns. Royal? Not sure, Least Sandpiper? Willet? Scoter, Black? Surf Scoter? Pacific Loon? All help greatly appreciated.
  7. I finally got out between the rains and need a little help on these. Taken 2 weeks ago in the hills near Rancho Santa Margarita. Not sure, House Sparrow? Same? Not a great shot, Red-tailed Hawk and Crow? Thank you for the help!
  8. Got out to June Lake, CA in the Sierra Mountains. I think this is a Red-breasted Sap Sucker (terrible picture) Also in the Not Great Picture World, was this one. Acted Like a Black Phoebe (Clearly Not) by perching and taking out flying insects. Any help is greatly appreciated' Thank You!
  9. Made it up the hill to Big Bear Lake for Father's Day weekend. Many of the regulars were out, just checking on 2. Not sure which Hummingbird and I believe the other is a White-breasted Nuthatch. Thank you for the help!
  10. Thanks, I should have known black necked stilt since there were many around.
  11. All these taken last week near Palm Desert, Pushwall Palms trail and the Cochella Nature Preserve. 1) Hooded Oriole 2) Not great photos, but after the thrashing my legs got in these extremely thorny bushes, I had to post. Yellow-rumped Warbler? 3) Same- bad photos, bleeding legs. Black-tailed Gnatcatcher? 4) Say's Phoebe? 5) House Sparrow? This next one is actually from the Salton Sea, but I still think it is house Sparrow. Last one, also Salton Sea and one of my favorites. Burrowing Owl
  12. Not sure what happened with the upload on the last one. 2) Northern Shoveler? And I'm curious about the small bird on the left, looks like a small bird of prey. I don't think any of the others can be identified. 3) Semipalmated Sandpiper?
