The Phainopepla was nice to see. They are very difficult in Marin County (but there have been more and more records in the past few years), they're close to annual now. Looks like @DLecy got it as well.

2400

That's the place you would see one. Sitting on some berry bushes!

Why never any pics of the TRKI?

My current Camera is very cheap, has little zoom, and the kingbird is always being seen very far away. Luckily, I have a new Camera coming Sunday and hopefully if I find it again, I can get a pic of it.

I got @Charlie Spencers suggestion. The panasonic fz80point and shoot. I thought it fits my budget, needs, and it’s a good beginning Camera. As you may know, I have been birding since may, but just as a backyard birder. I basically started real birding in November, so I am still very good to the hobby, but I am loving it!

I know you are excited about your new camera and I'm stoked for you, but I wanted to share a few photo guidelines from eBird that relate to your checklist.

 - Upload multiple photos (up to 10 per species), but only if they are sufficiently different.

Multiple images of the same species

 - We encourage you to add multiple photos that show different individuals, parts, angles, or behaviors of the species as well as photos illustrating different individuals seen while you are out birding. However, multiple images should illustrate differences and not be nearly identical frames from the same burst of shots.

Many of your photos are VERY similar, with the bird only moving just slightly and/or the exact same photo posted multiple times just cropped differently. The Macaulay Library has to store all images uploaded to the site and they want observers to avoid doing these such things. As an observer, a checklist with so many photos of so many species is visually fatiguing.

Please read this page from eBird:
