Oh sorry, I meant Allen's, just got the names mixed up. Is the green backs mark reliable for females? I just don't wanna tick Allen's as a lifer without reasonable certainty.

Hummingbirds, CA and around

In order to avoid littering the forum, I have collected all the hums in one thread, leading to a two-post split. All pictures taken in August.

In the first post, all are from San Diego and around,...

Thanks! That's funny, the only other Western Tanager was a shorty view from a car in high speed, so we had so far no pictures, but now the problem is solved :)

Seeing the interest in the bird, here are some more angles on it (pretty much all we have) and let me specify the location to the shores of Klamath lake.

Thanks!



In Peterson, Sedge Wren is about one state-width out of range. For number 1, hoping Bewick's is the main reason for asking, but sadly, this is the best photo.

Thanks! The Vireo caught me off-gurad, I just thought all Vireos are more like the "googly" ones, which this isn't so much, so I looked only at warblers. Finch is probably not interesting to look...

Chipping sparrows? OR/ID

Among the sparrows, a set of images ended up in a bin labeled "nah, probably Chipping". Is that a good opinion on those birds from Oregon and Idaho this August?

Ducks OR and NV

Acknowledging the danger to look like a total moron, I have to admit that I can't figure out the first two from south OR. The final image is from central NV and could be a Redhead?

Btw. would you...

Thanks, so we'll accept them on time of the year as a lifer :) Short-tailed we have seen plenty of in Australia, but Sooty has been elusive so far.

Various leftovers from multiple locations with reach of public transportation in San Diego, beginning of August. One bird better than the other :)

Sheerwaters, CA

Off the coast near San Francisco in early September. I think Sooty should be by far the most common there, but is it a safe ID? Thanks!

Good idea! I asked them on facebook, they replied swiftly that "none of these are the bird", so it's settled then.
