Can anybody confirm an ID on the yellow crowned one in Stahl's post?

I'm thinking Verdin?

Just a couple minutes ago, snapped a few pics of my local hummingbird feeding the chicks. It's nesting on a pine that is about 3' from the door of my building here at work. Noticed the female at the nest last week, then walked out today and noticed the little beaks poking up.

Bad pics, but was lucky to get any at all:

This little guy, it had to be a guy, landed on my wiper at the freaking
strip mall where I went to get a hair cut. So, I couldn't go in and leave
him there so I sat there and took pics with the cell phone and wondered what
to do. I was pretty sure I knew where his home was and I was just about
to pick him up and climb the tree when Mom showed up. Man, did she read
him the riot act! That got his attention toute de suite and off they flew!

Hey, it was a really cheap and crappy phone, mkay?

Pretty cool area.

Elcapinyoazz,
At the time I didn't even take notice. I was happy to get one decent pic with my crappy old camera.
We have Anna's, Allen's and Rufous (in the middle of summer) in our yard so....can't say. I see some green on the back with a hint of orange.
Maybe a call for an expert.

I went to the World Ice Art Championships in Fairbanks this week. The ice sculptures were amazing. This is one of the single block sculptures that fits in with the birds.

So, I go to Bolsa Chica today, and start out. I'm lookin' at this island that usually only has gulls and cormorants and I see this babe. I'm thinkin' wtf is that? I learned my lesson last night (on the Owl Prowl) and get photos first. Ask questions later.
I've never asked why they call it the double crested cormorant. Not a single field guide has the photo that explains it.

Yes, we went on an "Owl Prowl" last night and saw all the normal local Owls. Barn Owl, Great Horned and Western Screech, and I'm an idiot because I should have got the great Screech photos but I put my camera away too early, it was way dark.
We stopped (Starr Ranch), and our guide called one in and it was right above us in a tree.
I got a GHO early on though.

Nice meadowlark! The reddish Egret shot is also great. Nature - where did you get that last one?

Mike - I shot that a few days ago in Costa Rica. It's a Black-headed Trogon (Trogon melanocephalus)

Edit: or did you mean Gym Birdwell? ;-)
