  1. Yes, I've been here since 1990 minus a 3 year stay in Japan. Lots of birding options and then fairly short drives for mountains and desert environments as you know. The Hermit Thrush is a first for me! and all during a work call.
  2. Just saw this one this morning in Orange County, CA. An advantage of remote work! I believe it is a Hermit Thrush and an Allan's Hummingbird. Thanks for the help and happy new year! Bob
  3. Thank you! I'm finely making some progress in identifying. B
  4. I was out at Rancho Santa Margarita Lake (don't let the word 'Lake' fool you. It is a paved full walk around with about 1 mile circumference) yesterday. I got a few shots of some I wanted to confirm their ID. Hooded Merganser (My first female) 1. 2. 3. I'm guessing House Sparrows 4. House Sparrow 5. Yellow-rumped Warbler. 6. Different bird, but I think Yellow-rumped as well. 7. Same bird in 6 8-11. I think are Townsend's Warbler (1st thought Magnolia, but Townsend's looks more like it) 8. 9.
  5. Taken yesterday in Southern California, I thought Clay-colored, Chipping, or White-crowned. After looking at it closer I believe it is a White-crowned based no the color of the bill. Different bird, same area. Thank you for all your help and advice!
  6. Thank you Tony. I really appreciate the information. B
  7. Thanks for the help. I was thinking they were all Black Throated so I didn't get many pictures. Here are all of the ones with the Sage/Bells and what I thought was a Song Sparrow. And another bird I thought was a Song Sparrow
  8. Here are a few more from this weekend. I think these are Black-Throated Sparrows, and from my experience the angriest of the Sparrows. 1. 2. This one I'm not sure about, possible a juvenile Black Throated 3. 4. 5. American Wigeons and a Coot 6. American Wigeon 7. I appreciate everyone's help!
  9. Was Out at the Colorado River this weekend (Bullhead city area). I believe I have these identified correctly, with one new species as the Cinnamon Teal continues to elude me. Tree Swallow (I thought Northern Rough Winged, but the tail looks like a Tree to me). 1. 2. This one could be a Rough Winged 3. Spotted Sandpiper 4. 5. I Think Spotted as well 6. Thank you for all help!
  10. Yes, I don't think I ever had such a clear picture, while I may not be the worst birder, I may be the worst photographer. I've never noticed the white eye-ring before. That threw me off.
  11. 😀😀😀😀 No, I meant 'friend'. He was quite nice for posing with the woodpecker for me.
  12. I think it was the Audubon's subspecies. Looks different from the ones in Southern California.
