  1. This bird, flying over water, is an Osprey for me.
  2. You have an adult Cooper's Hawk there. They adapt well to urban settings. They are fond of eating Mourning Doves and Rock Pigeons.
  3. How about female Northern Shoveler, with that big bill?
  4. Plus the even up and down body shape. Sharpies are top heavy.
  5. I agree that without other supporting pics, go with Cooper's
  6. Hard pics but that is a strong white supetcillium in that second pic which strikes me as a Gos.
  7. No. Dark eyes, heavy feet, beiiy band, minimally banded light tail, and husky build all support Red-tailed Hawk.
  8. I'm going to guess he was camped at Lake Hemet.
  9. I think the top ones are Red-tailed Hawk breast feathers. The white tipped gray ones are Mourning Dove tail feathers.
  10. If you look closely you can see the shorter outer tail feathers. Plus that tube shaped body.
  11. Agreed. Costa's would have a longer wing tip projection.
  12. Yes! I was thinking along those same lines after I studied it further.
  13. Are you guys sure about Starling? Look at the tail, bill, and that touch of red on the head. I'm not too familiar with eastern Woodpeckers, but maybe Red-bellied? The hummer should be a Ruby-throated by range, but no way to verify by this pic.
  14. Top is juvenile ( grayish banded tail ) and bottom is adult ( dark eye, solid tail. )
  15. Well, there's black spotting on the white sides of the tail, so that makes a bill length call irrelevant. 😉
  16. Unfortunately, no way to tell on this type of feather.
  17. Sounds like a Bewick's Wren. Their song does resemble that of a Song Sparrow.
  18. Looks more brown and streaky to me, like a female Red-winged Blackbird.
