    This hummer hit our window and survived. I am guessing it is a female Anna's but not sure. ID? The odd thing is the leading edge of both P10s look to be worn off(?)

    I feel awkward about this question, but.... I am doing some feather research (licensed) and wanted to use a chicken as a baseline against other species. I looked for images of a chicken with bristle feathers and none were to be found, yet all the chicken feather discussion includes the claim...

    Santa Maria, CA, USA in March Gull #2

    I did not misunderstand the request. I understood the shortcoming of the first photo. I qualified my response by saying it was my only other shot. I was trying to be responsive and helpful. Why are you critiquing a conversation between two people and not making a comment of the bird in question...

    Santa Maria, CA, USA in March Gull #2

    note the file title, 1504, 1505 I caught the bird opening its mouth I purposefully cropped the earlier picture (1504) because the request was for any other shots with a focus on the bill shape. I assumed that the crop would help even though the mouth was still open.

    San Diego Murrelets

    The record in ebird has no pictures for the current year, so encounters are thin. I agree that 2-4 are Guadalupe and the first is a Scripp's. I erroneously labeled the 3rd bird based on a conversation at the time I took the shot. Pelagic birding is fast and prone to error with a number of birds...
