    S.California, La Jolla

    These were sent to me for ID, but I'm struggling. Non-birder, who said "sparrow-sized, feeding on the ground" Poor pics, but any ideas would be appreciated.

    RFI Los Angeles, California

    I'm going to LA in mid October for a couple of days, though not an actual birding trip. I'd welcome any info or suggestions on good birding sites, preferably without the use of a car. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Birding in Dubai

    I intend to visit Dubai for a few days in the next month or so. Not a proper birding trip, but would very much welcome any advice on how to see what's about there. I'll have a vehicle available, and am unashamedly looking for LIFERS. Any advice on strategy would be most gratefully received.

    Cozumel, Mexico, info requested

    I plan to be on Cozumel Island, Mexico next weekend and would appreciate any advice on maximising birding opportunities. It is not really a birding trip, due to the prescence of non-birders, but a chance to see the endemics and any other new species cannot be ignored! I'll obviously search BF...

    Thoughts on this would be appreciated.

    Forgive the intrusion, but why does anyone bother to post these 'Lists' of birds they've seen?... My Year list, My county lists, life lists etc, etc ad nauseum. Do they really believe anyone is interested, or moreover if anyone actually reads them in detail? What is the purpose? I can...

    Long-shot in Florida

    Birding between Los Angeles and San Diego

    I'm going on a short trip to California in a week's time and hope to do a bit of birding here and there. I'll be hiring a car and it would be nice to see some birds that we don't get in Florida. Any suggestions or information re the area between LA and San Diego would be gratefully received.

    Bird ID?

    Are these two obvious, or not?

    Any thoughts on this?

    I'd be grateful for confirmation or otherwise of this bird taken in July, central Florida. I was experimenting with BSS settings on my camera, having failed to get much in focus of late, and hadn't even noticed this bird amongst the mixed roost I'd been observing.

    South Carolina

    I'd be grateful for any advice on places to bird in South Carolina at this time of year. I'm not sure of what might be seen there as opposed to Florida in mid June. Any thoughts gratefully received.

    Pelagic Birding, North Carolina

    I was thinking about doing some pelagic birding in the next few weeks and would be grateful for any information/experiences on trips out of NC (Hatteras etc), which I understand the Gulf Stream favourably influences. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Lesser Scaup

    I noticed there were a couple of Lesser Scaup reported on Bird Guides today. Having looked in Collins, I noticed there was no detailed description, it being in the back with 'Vagrants' (recorded only a few times) I hadn't realised it was that rare, does anyone have any numbers for it?
