Are those shots above taken with your cannon SX 50?

I got one but found it hard to use. Must take some getting used to...


Edit, yea that view finder is useless. Hard to get the bird in frame at high zoom.

Yes John, they are. I don't use the viewfinder much, just the screen.

OK,I need some bird ID help


I took this picture about a year ago at Cotton wood springs near the south entrance of JT

Thinking it could be a vireo of some type..

Maybe Warbler vireo, or Philadelphia??

The upper eye line looks right.

From the color, maybe a Cassin's Vireo?

Awesome shot Reilly. Where was that?

We have had a very surprising bird calling over the last week behind our place in the East SF Bay. A Common Poor-will is not far away upslope from us. Hopefully, I can manage to see it if stays around. I think this may be the most unlikely bird that we have had around since we moved here 3 years ago. A Brown Thrasher may be even rarer, but it was a mile or so away. I would have been able to see this guy if it hadn't been dark.

“Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn’t the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.
I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper.”

Brilliant blackbirds Moose! Even my blasé wife Margy thought that was cool.


John, I'm going with Warbling Vireo. I think too yellowy for Plumbeous and too much of an eye stripe(behind the eye) for Cassin's Vireo.
A Philadelphia Vireo would be ultra ultra rare but not impossible.

Here is a Cassin's from a while back. Good shot of Plumbeous upthread from me and a great shot upthread from Reilly.

My first thought was also a Warbling Vireo. Looking forward to seeing other opinions as well -
