  1. OK, I'm pretty sure this is not a House Sparrow since it was smaller and didn't have the same behavior. I'm also pretty sure it's not a Song Sparrow since no streaked breast and also smaller. I'm thinking a Chipping Sparrow even though similar to Clay-colored. All help welcomed and appreciated. Sorry iPhone photos but with an 11 so a little better than my 10. :)
  2. Hi Trevor, Near Oceanside there are a few lagoons (Aqua Hedionda and Buena Visa Lagoons) that provide good birding. I think you can rent kayaks at one of them. Further south in Encinitas is the San Diego Botanical Gardens that is excellent. A little pricy but I think is free on the first Tuesday of the month if that applies. I've had excellent days at the botanical gardens and is one of my favorite places in the area. Also, the beaches there are great plus you have Oceanside Harbor. The Salton Sea is also great in the winter South of Indio and the Southern Section of the sea, Sonny Bono National Wildlife Reserve I've hears is great, I've only been to the northern part. It is Huge!!!! so plan enough time. I've been to J-Tree but didn't have quality birding. It wasn't the objective of the trip so I hope you have better luck if you go there. B
  3. Thanks. I should have looked at juvenile images first. B
  4. No other pictures of that one or do I recall any sound. It was a quick shot as it flew away. Thanks for the ideas and trying, I really appreciate it. B
  5. Saw this one in Southern California, Orange County today. I'm stuck between Red-Shouldered, Rough Legged, or Northern Harrier. It looks a little like a Mississippi Kite, but don't think so. All help welcomed! Thanks B

  12. Hello, Saw this folk this morning at Newport Beach, CA. I first though they were sanderlings, but the size and bill color doesn't match. Also, in the upper-left of the picture there appears to be a different shorebird that I cannot identify. Thank you for everyone's help! Same flock in flight
