A long shot! - Hirundine, Orlando US

Hi All

I'm probably hoping in vain on these shots, but I'd be interested if anyone can have a stab at suggesting an ID.

These are different birds from a small flock of 6-7 seen one evening in late...

Thanks.
I see what you mean about Empidonax sp.

CA Towhee? San Diego, USA

These are different birds (in case that's not apparent from the images). Colouration suggests California Towhee to me, but would appreciate confirmation, or correction if I'm off target!

many thanks

Wrentit ? San Diego, May

I'd be grateful for a positive ID of this bird, seen in dense bushes. Not sure if it's Bushtit or Wrentit.

Blackbird, San Diego US

Hi

never been good with blackbirds. Is this a common grackle? Black glossy wings/back and less-heavy tail made me wonder whether it could be Brewer's Blackbird.
Please can someone confirm either...

Grebe? - San Diego River, Calif.

These images are of 2 birds amongst a small flock of Ruddies on San Diego river in May.

Noticeably larger than the ducks, the best I can manage is a grebe, due to the predominantly white face and...

Sparrow - San Diego, Calif

I hate sparrows!

Is this Song? Longish tail and lack of yellow lores suggests this over Savannah.

Please can someone confirm ID

Kingbird - San Diego, Calif

This bird was seen and imaged in low late evening sun, which is giving a colour cast.

The white throat patch suggests Cassin's to me, but I'd like to be sure and rule out Western.

Please could...

Apologies this is obviously not a bird, but was photographed whilst on a birding trip, so does that count?
