  1. 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. 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).

    2.IMG_7021.jpg.62d8b86c91a298eaf6e8dcc7f4cd97fe.jpg

    This one could be a Rough Winged

    I Think Spotted as well

    Thank you for all help!

     

  3. I was in Marina, CA this past weekend and think a I have a few new ones.  I'll have a gull post later as I am not good at identifying gulls and want to spend more time trying to ID them myself.  All help greatly appreciated. 

    1.  Townsend's Warbler (I'm pretty sure).  The habitat didn't match my book, but the picture and description do.

    3.  Downy Woodpecker

  4. All taken last week on Orcas Island.  Actually at Mt. Constitution the highest point on the island.  Very amazing place, but odd in that not a lot of birds.  In fact, on this mountain top it was eerily silent.  I appreciate all of your help!

    I think these are a crossbill.  I'm guessing Red Crossbill based on location.

    Super long shot.  I could only get his picture from behind a window.  Maybe can't be ID:

  5. All taken last week in the Anacortes and Orcas Island area.   All help appreciated! Here's a mix:

    1, 2 Unknown Hummingbird

    3.  Double Crested Cormorant? (I'm still looking for that pelagic!)

    IMG_7155.jpg.bd1a526fce9a3b88361a583372ab57d8.jpg

    4, 5 This one looked different, but after looking at the book I think it is an American Robin

    6, 7, Northwestern Crow ? 

    I've read about these and am not sure they can be determined from American Crows.
