Finally after more than a month I was able to get a photo of the Harris’s Sparrow where you can actually tell what it is. Still poor quality however. Think I’m doomed to never get a good photo but alw

Lifer 300, the great and mighty Whooping Crane.

Been real busy at work to post but did get out to see this Black Guillemot when it showed up in december here on the jersey shore

Wow! Are you sure?

positive! the yellow went all the way up! Plus, there is records of Couch's in my county, so very safe to call it tropical!

That’s a really short bill for a Hairy...

I know, but I've never seen a Downy 1.5 times the size of a Nuttall's. 

What were you thinking? Hybrid? weird Downy? I did take a bunch if photos and have audio of the Peek! call

Here is the checklist with the photos and audio

While there are a few photos that have a Hairy feel to it, especially some of the first ones, and some fields Marla match up, something seems off. Also, the audio is weird. It sounds like NUWO. I’Ve never heard a Hairy, at least on the west coast, make a call like this. I would put this on the ID forum. It might be something like a different subspecies, or another hybrid.

A flock of Canada’s just flew over my house (as they usually do this time of day) and there was a snow goose with them. Instead of reaching for my camera I reached for my binoculars instead so that was dumb! 
We’ll see if it gets confirmed but it’s the first time I’ve ever seen one.

Not unless it flew 400 miles to Sacramento!

Stranger things have happened... after all, it already must have traveled a long way..
