    Northern California House Finch plus Western Tanager?

    I believe the bird on the left is a female house finch and the bird in the middle a male. But I need help identifying the yellow bird to the right -- is it a Western Tanager? Photo was taken 12/24/21.

    Western Tanager in Northern California, USA?

    I'm 99% sure this is the first Western Tanager I've seen visiting my backyard but posting here for confirmation. He took a nice little bath and then a female came along and joined him afterwards.

    House sparrows dominate my yard...(Northern California)

    Hi Matt. In the time since this post I have setup a platform feeder that the Doves and Jays seem to enjoy using. Plus it keeps me from having to throw food on the ground for them. Sparrows still dominate the area but just today I saw a Western Tanager using the birdbath. That was a nice sight.

    Any issues with shelled peanuts?

    I recently tossed some shelled peanuts (roasted / unsalted) onto my platform feeder and the local Scrub-Jays seem to love taking them. Are there any issues with shelled peanuts I should be aware of? I looked into it and there seems to be some disputes over roasted vs. raw etc.

    Bushtits in Northern California?

    I saw a number of these little guys bouncing from tree to tree hanging under branches and moving around in a group. I think they are Bushtits. What do you all think? Extremely difficult to get good pictures of these guys!
