  1. I see them almost daily.🙂 This one has a lighter colored head but otherwise looks average. Looks like a mature bird to me.
  2. Have you considered Red-shouldered juvenile?
  3. Yah. Cal Quail is practically a yard bird for me. They have dark crowns. Yours is a Gambel's.
  4. Definitely enough black to call a Scarlet.
  5. I believe you are right. Sure looks like a vireo, and your blank faced choices are very limited.
  6. Looks more like an Eastern Phoebe to me.
  7. So I checked the Pennsylvania bird breeding atlas. Apparently Common Raven is an early nester there. So we can all agree this one is a juvenile.
  8. I think it's just a bit early for a fully fledged juvie at your lattitude. I haven't even noticed any here in San Diego yet.
  9. What's your location? If you are not too far north, then I agree. If not we have to consider other possibilities.
  10. This time of year, Cassin's will give themselves away when they sing. They do the whole skylark thing, where they launch themselves into the sky, singing as they go. Botteri's just sit on top of a bush and sing.
  11. It's an empid flycatcher, but I'm not good enough to tell you which one from these pics.
  12. Looks good for Western Wood-Pewee to me.
  13. Yah, and you're in one of the very few places where Ladder-backed overlaps. I agree with Nuttall's here.
  14. I believe I am seeing both Greater and Lesser among your pics.
  15. You're probably right. Although I live in San Diego county, and have seen countless Brandt's and D.C., I have yet to see a Pelagic. I haven't really looked though. I need to spend a day at the coast, especially the rocky areas. I usually go to the sandy beaches with my family.
  16. https://beta.washingtonpost.com/news/animalia/wp/2017/11/22/heres-the-deal-with-all-those-turkeys-terrorizing-the-suburbs/?outputType=amp
  17. Pelagic is a possibility for the single bird, but I think the bill is too thick. Not positive though. The photo is kind of dark on my phone.
  18. Thought I saw a notch on that tail feather, but it just looks like a light spot, so I agree with Allen's. I think your first cormorant is a Brandt's, and I see Brandt's and Double-crested in your group pic.
  19. Thay bird is looking away, making the bill look shorter. Check out the black across the underside of the tip of the tail on the other bird. I've seen both species. The differences are subtle, but there.
