3 Swallows and 2 Woodpeckers So. Cal


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Went up to the local mountains this weekend.  Big Bear Lake, CA. and all taken in the last two days.  I'll have few posts to follow with other species. 

I believe the first 2 are Tree Swallows, 2nd 2 are Cliff Swallows, and the last 2 are Violet-green Swallows.

Woodpeckers:

I think the first 3 (same bird) is a Hairy Woodpecker

Not sure on this one, only get the back.  Maybe a Hairy?

Thanks for the help and your feedback is interesting.  I thought Tree for the first 2.  I took them on the walk out.  Then the last two of the Violet-green were from an elevated deck where I could get their top-side.  

That makes sense, even if it crushes my 3 sparrow day .
