What bird is this?

Recommended Posts

Small black and white bird with a long tail and orange bill seen in Fullerton CA several times last 30 days. Eating bird seed on ground and on a wire.Tail is longer than the body. I have 2 pictures but can't figure out how to post them.

That sounds like a male Pin-tailed Whydah. They've been introduced to California.

You can attach your photos by clicking "choose files..." at the bottom of the reply box.

akandula yes that it! Thank you. Not the best pics but first one shows colors and markings and the second one shows tail length. No wonder my Merlin bird app couldn't figure his out.
