Backyard Birds Southern California


Recommended Posts

These were all taken last weekend in Southern California.  

I believe this is a Bewick's Wren, but could be a House Wren.

I'm going with a Song Sparrow for this one

I'm unsure on this sparrow

This one I believe is a warbler.  Possible a Yellow-Rumped, but not sure as the patterns look different than other Yellow-Rumped I've spotted.

As always, Thank you for all of your help.

  1. Bewick's Wren is correct. House Wrens do not have such contrasting white eyebrows.
  2. Song Sparrow is correct. Note the russet above and thick streaks below.
  3. Chipping Sparrow, due to the dark lores/eyeline.
  4. That's actually a Ruby-crowned Kinglet. Note the white eyering, tiny bill, and black bar under a white wingbar.

Thanks.  I didn't even think of a kinglet.  I was so sure it was a warbler I only looked in that section.  That is my second chipping sparrow. I think the larger size threw me off since the first one I saw was much smaller. 

Thank you for the help.

And the ruby in the crown, thus a male
