  1. Got out to the Salton Sea this weekend and picked up a few new species.  Looking for confirmation on a few.  

    1.  American Avocet

    And the target species.  I heard you can find these all over the place along all of the roads,  maybe for others.  After several hours this was my only Burrowing Owl, but so happy to finally see one although he doesn't look happy to see me :)

    All confirmations and corrections greatly appreciated.

  2. 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.

  3. 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).

    This one could be a Rough Winged

  4. 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.
