First Parrot and others So. Cal

Recommended Posts

I set out to get a parrot and that is just what I did.  All taken yesterday in Southern California on a beautiful evening in the woods/fields

1) Red-Crowned Parrot (99% sure)



2) Lesser Gold Finch 


3) Red-Tailed Hawk, I think.  It usually is. 


4) At first I thought Western Tanager.  Couldn't get a clean shot.


5) I thought lesser gold finch again, but looked different.




6) No idea


So a successful day for my first parrot (at least a photo) and maybe some other new ones.

Thank you for any and all help.

All guesses are correct. I’m not sure about the tanager though. It could be an oriole. The mystery bird is a Warbling Vireo

We do have Hooded Orioles in this area and I've seen on this same hike.  



I’ve cropped the photos and they look good for tanager
