  1. Black-chinned Hummingbird and Virginia's Warbler.
  2. My best pic of a western Fox Sparrow for comparison.......
  3. I think we could figure that out. Anyone else that's seen western Fox Sparrows think 5 could be one, or is it just me?
  4. That's a pretty typical pose, perch. and habitat for Mountain Bluebird as well.
  5. I like Five even better for Fox after seeing this pic.
  6. They're a hard one to ID. Luckily the two times I've seen them they've been doing the skylark thing.
  7. Cassin's almost always stay hidden on the ground except when displaying the behavior I mentioned. I'm sure if it was a Cassin's you'd have seen that behavior.
  8. Yeah, You'd need a view showing the back to eliminate Allen's, but your location already does that.
  9. I think four looks like a Song Sparrow. Cassin's would be "Skylarking" this time of year, that is launching upward and singing, then landing on the ground. Did you notice that behavior? I could also see five as an interior west Fox Sparrow, if I'm seeing the yellow lower mandible and dorsal color shading correctly.
  10. I studied this pic quite a while, since I don't get Ruby-throated here. But from what I can see in my Sibley, I'm going to call this a juvie Male Ruby-throated, due to the markings, bill length and straightness, and wingtip to tail ratio. The bill is the reason I'm not saying Black-chinned. The behavior is because it's young and dumb. 🙂
  11. Could this be your bird? https://images.app.goo.gl/7WAeazbRAt7bwoya8
  12. If you'll post the pic, we'll give you the ID.
  13. It is kind of far away, but I see the white forehead and long wings of a Swainson's Hawk here.
  14. I'm looking at this thinking why is this Rock Wren on top of a tree? 🤔
  15. Yeah, I've been to Mono Lake. California Gull was the only species I saw there too. The mantle looks dark on yours because it's shadowed.
  16. http://archive.knoxnews.com/entertainment/columnists/marcia-davis/bald-crestless-unmasked-cardinal-looks-weird-but-is-normal-360a1450-ec42-2288-e053-0100007f0e2f-389320141.html
  17. Generally nocturnal owls call most just after sundown.
  18. Won't let me edit. I meant not mite related normal molt.
