Taken on 4-29-2021 in the morning at Bear Divide in Angeles National Forest (between Canyon Country and Lake View Terrace, CA).  Ongoing migration count and banding station.

I can't tell if this is a Wrentit or a female Bushtit.  These are the only two photos I have of it.

Thanks everyone.  That's another new one for me.  That makes 7 new species that have been identified from my photos from yesterday -- and I still have several more to ID.  

I went to a migration counting and banding operation for the first time.  It was great to see how that all works.  I was amazed at how they could immediately identify the passerines in flight.  I have to take pictures, then come home and do research to identify most of them -- even the ones sitting still.

If anyone wants to see my partial checklist, its here: https://ebird.org/checklist/S86692306

And feel free to let me know if I've mis-identified any with photos (or without photos if you're that good).

I’m curious. Do you know what they sound like? It’s very distinctive. I’d say I hear 10 a day, but very , very rarely get visuals( secretive). They are common down here in SoCal, but way more often heard then seen.
