  1. It is looks like a female Yellow-shafted Northern Flicker. Yellow-shafted males have a black malar and a red nape crescent...females do not have the malar but do have the red nape crescent which is not visible in this photo. Do you have any other shots of this bird? 🙂
  2. Yes, I expect you are right on the House Finch. I studied the bill for quite a while and thought that it fit a Purple best but I failed to look at any other features such as the facial pattern which is definitely a key factor in this ID. Thanks for your help. 🙂
  3. To my eyes, the bill doesn't look right for a Pine Siskin...I think it fits a female Purple Finch better. 🙂 Perhaps @The Bird Nuts will chime in on this one. 🙂
  4. Yep, California, lol!!! I live in the PNW aka the Pacific Northwest [Washington, Oregon, and Idaho]...it is a more specific ''region'' of the West. South Carolina is in the South Atlantic region, a more specific region of the South. 🙂
