Really?

Ebird flags them as rare throughout the county. There however are a few locations where you can almost be guaranteed to get them at, especially along the coast. But, there is becoming so many reports, that I think soon(at least along the coast), Ebird was stop flagging them. Still much less common than BCNH or GRHE.

I think Kevin was questioning the ID, not the status of the bird. It honestly looks like a BCNH to me.

Why?

I initially thought the bill shape looked off, but now that I'm on a bigger screen I can see I'm wrong. 

The long legs, long neck, posture and yes, bill shape look good for Yellow-crowned.

No I don't have a problem with the id(in fact I have barely even looked a the photo), it just seems like @IKLland sees them so often they don't seem rare!

Oh, true.

Reminds me of the time I was out birding with my best friend and we saw a Zebra Swallowtail. I got super excited and told him how rare it was for our area. It was really cool. 

 

 

And then we saw four more ?

Small numbers are essentially becoming established in coastal southern California.

Aye.

 

@Kevin please tell your family not to mind the tents. We're just doing a big year!

I'm only at 137 for this year, but of course with you being here all the time it would be much larger than that, closer to my all time list of 191.

I do pay a price for my yard, I endure 5 months of brutal weather, 100-115 every day, it does not rain, there is no clouds, the wind does not even blow. You get tired of that real fast.

That's awful. In Georgia it's about 95 and humid, but at least we have a breeze.
