  1. 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.

    House Sparrow?  The Orange throws me off, but I think it is a House

    Northern Shoveler?  To me, in this picture it didn't look like one, but there were a lot in this area.

  3. 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?

    5) House Sparrow?

    IMG_7092.thumb.jpg.378124e4cfd518a489db518464e5e3d9.jpg

    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

  4. Finally made back out to the Salton Sea last week (and got home to download my pictures).  These ones are all taken at the Sonny Bono Preserve in the southern part of the lake.  Checking on some identifications, others need help 

     

    1) Common Ground-Dove

     IMG_7034.jpg.82be60db79799f1e5878e795131eb4a8.jpgIMG_7007.jpg.8ddc127ec7fbbbc81745fea0cbc8b4e0.jpgIMG_7035.jpg.23141f8c72bc6e262919388baf26532c.jpgIMG_7036.jpg.0de5a74274e2bf22d186ef4a42d9c7cb.jpg

    2) Also Common Ground-Dove?

    3) No Idea,

    4) Townsend's Warbler?

    5) Gnat Catcher?

    Thanks for the help, Next up- Shore birds

  5. No pic, sorry

     

    not a black-necked stilt. 
     

    I should have circled back for the picture. I thought magpie for sure until I looked at the distribution maps

    Pin-tailed whydah Looks like it  thanks IKLland  not enough data for me to confirm, it is actually the second time I saw this one.  My family can tolerate my bird watching so much and a U-Turn to get the shot might have made me a permanent resident of the Salton Sea  

    actual location was a few miles south of the Sonny Bono nature preserve in the agricultural fields

  6. Hello,

    I have a lot of pictures to go through, but I know I missed this one. Black and and white and looked like a magpie (black or yellow billed, unsure). When I did my research, I can’t see where there range covers the Salton Sea. 
     

    any ideas?  I can’t find any other bird that would match

    thanks!  Other Picts to come  

     

     

     

  7. Saw this guy on a morning walk this past weekend in play Springs.  Lots of Yellow-rumped warblers in the area, but this one looked different with the yellow face.  Sorry i did not get a clear shot.  

    Made a hike out to the Coachella nature preserve, but the late start and rising temps left just me and the ravens.

    Bonus shot:  Of course the Coot cooperated, but the others didn't.  Is that a Pied-billed grebe in the back?  No clue on the ducks. Lots of wigeons around, but none looked like these.   A teal?
