  1. Taken on 1-5-2022 in the afternoon on the Los Angeles River between Burbank Channel confluence and the Riverside Dr. bridge in Glendale, CA. I usually don't attempt to ID immature gulls (and I think this is one). There were just two gulls standing in the water (a Western and this one) and I'm just curious what this is. I have a couple guesses, but could be way off. I looked away to photograph some other birds and was going to come back to this one to get better shots, but when I turned back it was gone.
  2. Taken in the late afternoon over the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. I identified several White-throated Swifts and Northern Rough-winged Swallows. This was the only one that looked different. The tail looks like Barn Swallow, but I'm not sure that the rest of it does.
  3. Taken in the late afternoon over the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA.
  4. Taken on 12-11-2021 at the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. I think this is an American Goldfinch, but whenever I think that, I'm usually wrong. I've seen hundreds of Lesser Goldfinches, but only 2 or 3 American Goldfinches. This one doesn't feel quite like a Lesser to me.
  5. Taken on 12-11-2021 above the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. I think I know what this is, but not confident.
  6. Taken on 11-15-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. At first I thought this might be an intersex Mallard, but then thought maybe a Mallard X Green-winged Teal hybrid.
  7. Taken on 11-15-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. This single scaup was hanging out with a group of 6 mallards. No other scaups seen on a 1-mile stretch of river. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a scaup on the Los Angeles River before. Can this one be identified? I don't have the expertise. It bothers me that it's eye does not appear to be yellow, but it is on the shaded side.
  8. Taken on 11-15-2021 above the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. Is this a Merlin? I've never seen one before, but I think they should have a white throat. This was a very small raptor, very fast, sleek and quick turns. It appeared from behind me, swooped down above some reeds, made an almost instantaneous 90 deg. turn and jetted away. I've never seen anything like it.
  9. Taken on 10-9-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. I believe this is a teal. Can it be identified?
  10. Taken on 10-9-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. Is the bird with the mostly white head a leucistic Least Sandpiper?
  11. Taken on 10-3-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Willow Street, Long Beach, CA -- 3 miles upstream from Long Beach Harbor. Would this be a Northern Pintail?
  12. Taken on 10-3-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Willow Street, Long Beach, CA -- 3 miles upstream from Long Beach Harbor. Can either of these Dowitchers be identified? And I have a question about Dowitcher bill length. Does the length of the bill vary noticeably for both species. I.e., does the bill length of a Long-billed Dowitcher vary significantly from one bird to another? And, does the bill length of a Short-billed Dowitcher vary significantly from one bird to another? If so, does a Long-billed Dowitcher with a shorter bill have about the same length of bill as a Short-billed Dowitcher with a longer bill?
  13. Taken on 10-3-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Willow Street, Long Beach, CA -- 3 miles upstream from Long Beach Harbor.
  14. Taken on 10-3-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Willow Street, Long Beach, CA -- 3 miles upstream from Long Beach Harbor. There were bunches of Cinnamon Teals and Blue-winged Teals, but I have this one bird (just two frames) that looks to me like a Northern Shoveler.
  15. Taken on 9-15-2021 at the Los Angeles River in Atwater Village, CA The images were dark and had to be lightened quite a bit. Not sure if the colors are represented well.
  16. Taken on 9-15-2021 at the Los Angeles River in Atwater Village, CA. There were about 50 of these small sandpipers that all seemed to be about the same size. All of those that I could clearly see the legs had yellowish legs. They landed in the shallow water, then after a while all flew around, then landed back in the water. I believe these are Least Sandpipers, but I want to make sure since they don't seem to be in the proper habitat. Normally they prefer mudflats and the waters edge -- which is where I have seen them in the past in small groups of 3 to 5. But here the whole large group was wading out in the center of the very shallow river -- maybe for lack of preferred habitat. Through this section of about 5 miles of the river, called Glendale Narrows, the river has a concrete embankment on the sides, and a natural bottom with trees and vegetation growing in it -- except for the sections immediately before and after a roadway overpass where the bottom is concrete and runs very shallow with lots of sediment and organic material. This is where the sandpipers were.
  17. Taken on 9-3-2021 in the late afternoon at the Los Angeles River in Atwater Village, CA. I'm not sure what I've got here.
  18. Taken on 7-25-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk. As I mentioned before, there were well over 100 Mallards on this day -- mostly juveniles. These two ducks seem to look different from most of the others. I'm not sure if they are just Mallards that are maybe younger than most of the other juveniles, or if they are something else.
  19. Taken on 7-25-2021 on the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk. There were well over 100 Mallards, mostly juveniles, and then there was this one duck with a white face. Is this just a domestic Mallard, or what?
  20. Taken on 7-25-2021 at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk on the Los Angeles River. What is the small bird at the right? There were about 100 Black-necked Stilts, 5 Greater Yellowlegs and this one small wading bird.
  21. Taken on 7-10-2021 at the Los Angeles River in Atwater Village, CA. Half the time I get these wrong. My first impression on the first photo was Sharpie, but after closer inspection I'm pretty sure its Cooper's.
  22. Taken on 7-10-2021 over the Los Angeles River in Atwater Village, CA. Help.
  23. Taken on 6-20-2021 at the Los Angeles River in Atwater Village, CA Is this a Barn Swallow? -- there were a lot of them flying around at the time. Do they have stubby outer tail feathers at some life stage? Thanks
  24. Taken on 5-8-2021 in the afternoon on the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. What is this duck with the white neck?
  25. Taken on 5-8-2021 adjacent to the Los Angeles River at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk in Glendale, CA. Is this a California Towhee? I'm not sure about that dark band on the tail. It is not a shadow -- I have several photos. Is that unusual or not? Thanks
