  1. 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
  2. Both taken at Newport Beach, CA this morning. I believe a Willet and a Royal Tern.
  3. At Laguna Beach, CA this morning for a very hot October morning walk. Confirming shorebirds, I think a New Sparrow for me and Anna's Hummingbird. all suggestions and corrections greatly appreciated: Black Turnstone Willet Whimbrel (based on range) but to me looks more like a Bristle-Thighed Curlew (but no where near the range) I'm in between Song and Vesper Sparrow on this one and on this hummer I'm going Anna's based on the breast patch, but unsure with the slightly curved bill
  4. Thank you so much for the help. The Finches give me trouble. I will look closer at the beak.
  5. All taken this past extended weekend. The shorebird on the Colorado River near Bullhead city and the others at various trails in the Sedona Area. All help, suggestions, and corrections greatly appreciated. The first one is a sandpiper at Bullhead city AZ, last weekend. Normally I see Killdeer and Spotted Sandpipers. This one might be another Spotted, but I'm not sure. Next, A towhee at Sedona AZ. I'm mixed between the Alberts and Canyon, but neither match the range in my field guide. I'm leaning towards Canyon based on the higher elevation and area. Finch. I can't tell House, Cassins, and Purple's apart. I'm guessing Cassins on this one at Sedona, again based on elevation Finally, The one I'm most excited and unsure about. I'm going with Gila Woodpecker, but the bill doesn't seem to match. Also in the Sedona, AZ area.
  6. Thanks for your help, I'll check out the other forum for pictures.
  7. I'm pretty sure this is a Clark's Grebe. San Joaquin Marsh in Irvine, CA last weekend. Just trying to confirm
  8. Here is the second part of the trip. At first I thought these were three separate species of hummingbird, but as I look at the field guide I think they are all Anna's. The last one I believe is a Western King bird and I just like the last shot of the two pelican species (brown and white) and the cormorants Western Kingbird Parting Shot
  9. Just went the to San Joaquin Marsh in Irvine, CA this morning and am embarrassed it has taken me this long to find this place. Will come back in the winter for sure. Here are my better shots and my species based on my field guide. All correction and confirmations welcomed and greatly appreciated. Next post all humming birds 1) Here I believe is a Clark's Grebe 2) and a Western Grebe 3) Song Sparrow (95% sure) 4) Gray Fly Catcher (?) but the bill seems loo long so a Warbler but don't know. 5) Western King Bird 6) Ruddy Duck (I'm pretty sure) 7) Common Yellowthroat
  10. Here are two additional photos (not as good) of the hummer. I was going with Anna's due to the smaller bill.
  11. All taken last 2 weeks in Orange County, CA. The shore birds at Crystal Cove State Beach and the others O'Neil Regional Park Area. Crystal Cove: OK, For these two Gulls I think it is a Ring-Billed and a Western Gull. The leg color is throwing me off. Confirming this is a Willet I'm guessing Song Sparrow (Or House) because every time I think it is a new sparrow it ends up being a Song Sparrow. O'Neil Park Area: I believe this is a an Anna's And this one I don't know. I first thought Dark-Eyed Junco, but I always see those in a flock. Maybe a Any and all help greatly appreciated!
