Agreed. Nice bird!

Thanks, everyone!

Trevor, here’s a list of birds we’ve seems in the area over the last 3 days. I’ll be asking for help with the ones with a question mark once I get home and process the photos.

Black-chinned Hummingbird (?)

Mourning Dove

Crows (my daughter insists they are ravens...? She is usually right.)

 

Palm Desert

Anna’s hummingbird (?)

Canada goose

American coot

Ruddy Duck

Pied-billed Grebe

Great egret

Great blue heron

American White Pelican

Vermillion Flycatcher

Black-crowned Night Heron (probable)

Trevor, To correct my list (thanks to people on the forum: not Anna’s but rather Costa’s Hummingbird; not American Kestral but rather Red-tailed Hawk. 
 

I also saw some Yellow-rumped Warblers in Indian Canyon; also what are probably House Finches.

I live in Yucca Valley right next to Joshua Tree National Park. Not a bird expert, but we do have American Kestrel here. We also have lots of Ravens but no Crows.
