  1. This bird was seen in southern California on Jan 23 near Santa Ysabel. It was in a flock of about a dozen. I believe it is some type of dove but I can't find a match. The photos are not good since the light was poor.
  2. Hello, Trying to identify another duck, my bird id app can't identify it. Sorry for the image quality, it was exported from a timeline in Final Cut Pro X. Date: 11/08/2019 Where: Atascadero, CA - running right past me. Thanks again for the help.
  3. Hi, All. I have a few bird pics that I would like to get opinions on. Thanks in advance! 1. & 2. I was hoping this was a Southwestern Willow Flycatcher, but in the 2nd pic, it appears to have an eye stripe. Paranagat NWR, near visitor's center, Lincoln Co. NV 3. Gambrel's Quail? Joshua Tree National Park. Backcountry (off-trail). San Bernadino County, CA
  4. Hello again, Need help again identifying another duck. I think it's an immature male/female Ruddy Duck. Merlin ID also identified this as a Ruddy Duck. Location: Atascadero, CA Where: Swimming in a lake When: November 8th, 2019 Thanks for your help again.
  5. 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.
  6. Is this a pin-tailed whydah? I thought it was an immature white-crowned at first, but I think it's too small and strange looking. (Also, can you submit observations from game/trail cams to eBird, or is that not allowed at all, even if it's your cam?)
  7. What is that at the very end of the clip? Recorded by a game cam in my yard on December 8th. 12-08-18_08-43 (uknown bird call).mp3
  8. Spotted this small hark yesterday (Nov 28, 2018) in San Leandro, CA. It remained perched for a long time, so I could not get a flight shot. Could turn its head at least 180. I would throw out some ideas of what I think it is, but I am perpetually confused by raptors! This is my first post. Hope I am following the rules!
  9. When I saw the duck in the attached photo it was standing so that it's breast was out of the water. The breast looked odd and different to me, very speckled, so I snapped a couple of pics. Unfortunately I've deleted everything except this one photo and now looking at it this duck does not seem to be a Mallard like I originally thought. Sorry - photo is a huge crop. The bill is lighter at the base and gets darker towards the end and the striping on the head looks "different" too. I can't find many pictures of them, but from what I can find I think this could possibly be a male eclipse Garganey. Seen in Orange County, California on 9/27.
  10. I found these birds in Lake Elizabeth & Gomes Park (both places are practically next to each other) on Sept. 20, 2018 in Fremont, CA, but couldn't ID. Does anyone recognize these birds here? bird2 by Klickie M, on Flickr bird1 by Klickie M, on Flickr bird by Klickie M, on Flickr
  11. Hello, I need help on identifying this bird I found on Mission Peak in Fremont, CA September 16, 2018. My guess is that it may be a Horned Lark, but want to verify. Thanks! DSCN0346 by Klickie M, on Flickr DSCN0343 by Klickie M, on Flickr
  12. Please help me identify this goose. I expect that it is in the genus Anser, but can't figure out the species unless it is a juvenile or a female without the typical adult male markings. Seen on September 3, 2018 before sundown on the Los Angeles River in the Glendale Narrows adjacent to Griffith Park and the I-5 freeway, 1/4 mile north of Los Feliz Blvd. The weather was sunny, warm and breezy. It was alone. I didn't see any others like it, nor any other geese. It was standing on rocks, dabbing in the water, preening and swimming. See attached photos. Thanks, Dan.
  13. What Type of flycatcher is this? taken in southern California.
  14. Hello y'all! I saw all of these birds yesterday at Huntington Central Park in Huntington Beach, CA from 1 pm-2 pm. I've included two pictures of each bird. Thanks for the help! Bird #1 Bird #2 This bird had a dark colored throat, which is not super visible in the photos. Bird #3 Bird #4 Bird #5
