S Cal long hike and help needed


Recommended Posts

So I went on a 10+ mile hike yesterday afternoon to start preparing for my Sierra hikes this summer.  Looking for ID confirmation and corrections and really appreciate all of your help.  

1.  Pretty sure these are House Finches.  Their coloration fooled me in the field

 2. Two different birds, but I think the same.  I believe is a House Wren, I first thought Winter Wren

Swallow time.  I think I have 3 different Swallows

3. Cliff Swallow

6. Red-shoulderedHawk.  Unsure, took flight right after the shot, went into think woods. The tail pattern made me think Red-shouldered.

7.  Not sure,  Black Phoebe?

8.  Lesser gold finch

9. Red-tailed Hawk

10. In the field I thought Ash-throated Flycatcher, now I'm not sure.

11.  Say's Phoebe?  Sorry, bad shot.  End of the hike and into the sun.  Long-shot I know, but all help welcome

12.  California Quail.  Not my first, but the first on this trail.  I missed an Oriole trying to get this shot :)
