Ebird has many records for Lucy's Warbler from the Moab area, so it is probably not all that strange, and Lucy's are wanderers: there are many records from far outside it usual range.

Yes, sorry for the confusion; I was referring to the "Merlin birdie" app referred to in the original post.

Merlin is right this time. The dark marks on the leading edge of the wing are diagnostic. Tail looks pale, but unmarked, which is also good for Red-tailed Hawk. Shape is perfect.

The eye looks pale brown on my monitor, which is ok for a female Brewer's Blackbird. Their eyes are usually dark, but can be even lighter than this.

The streaking is much less than I would expect on a wild House Finch - whether this is because of hybridization or selective breeding in captivity I cannot say.

Impossible to be certain from these photos, but in May in L.A. it is much more likely to be Allen's Hummingbird.

I still believe it is a juvenile Song Sparrow. The pale outer tail feather just has light shining through it. The spots on the scapulars are developing feathers, entirely consistent with a young Song...

I agree this sounds like a California Thrasher, including the habit of running rather than flying.

Lincoln's can be ruled out by range; they do not breed within about 150 miles (240 km) of Albany.

Hi Oyjord,

Nice report. It reminds me of a trip I took to the area a couple years ago, but you had better luck (or, more likely, were better prepared) than I and saw some good species I missed. One note: you...

The white in the tail, undertail coverts, and wing I don't think is found in any normal plumage of Red-winged Blackbird. I agree it is a young male of that species, but one that is a partial albino...

Thanks. Sometimes I just need a little reassurance. I guess what most bothered me about the bird was that the bill seems straighter than I am accustomed to seeing on Red-throated Loon.

Loon, Monterey County, California, USA
