Hello Forum! Thank you for all of your recent help in identifying my first west coast birds. YOU GUYS ROCK!!! I've got a few more that I can't quite place and would appreciate some help. Thanks! 1. The Merlin Bird App keeps pegging this one as a non-breeding or juvenile Black-Bellied Plover. It was larger than nearby sanderlings, smaller than willetts. Can anyone confirm?

The yellow on the side points to Chevron. Can anyone confirm? DSC_2852 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_2853 by degibox, on Flickr DSC_2861 by degibox, on Flickr 4. Lesser Yellow-legs???

Are there any California's in there? The one in the center of of the last pick was IDed as Heerman's by Merlin Bird ID but also marked as Rare. Would love human confirmation. A.

Hi, All. Any help in ID is appreciated. All pics taken within the last 5 days. Location stated with pic. Since we were backpacking, we were limited to point-and-shoots, so quality is lacking. 1. ? White Crowned Sparrow? Pahranagat NWR. Alamo, NV. 2. ?Yellow-Rumped Warbler? White Pine County, NV (lower elevation) 3. ?Red-Naped Sapsucker? White Pine County, NV (lower elevation). I could not see the red on the nape, but YBS does not occur in the area. 4. ?Red-Tailed Hawk? Great Basin National Park, White Pine County, NV 5. ?White Crowned Sparrow? White Pine County, NV (lower elevation) 6. ?Black Throated Sparrow? NP Visitor Center, Joshua Tree, San Bernadino, California 7 & 8. ?California Scrub Jay? Joshua Tree National Park, San Bernadino., CA. Backcountry hiking. The white wing patch is throwing me off.
