!!! Rufescent Tiger-Heron !!! What a bird!. Don't get many of those around here. ;-)

I did see my first, or at least first local, White Throated Sparrow on my bike commute home yesterday. I'm happy about that.

Here is a photo of a Pacific/Winter Wren from the Az Trip a month ago.

WARNING!

Possible Duck repost.

I got caught up in the duck enthusiasm starting with Cyndies shots.

A Yellow Wagtail in San Diego - probable but uncorroborated.
Dude was sitting on his boat and it flew right over him calling.

This dude ain't gonna see no stinkin' Motacillidae...nor does he care.

Today I saw a MacGillivray's Warbler at Pelonconi Park, Anaheim Hills. It is a small park, really a ravine. I guess the Santa Ana winds the last few days had some birds looking for a place to hide out, because it has been loaded with birds the last couple days.

Someone told me about the MacGillivray's they saw there, and I found her today and spend quite a long time trying to get some kind of pics.

Edited May 2. First of all, this one is most likely an Orange-crowned Warbler

Besides lots of Pacific-slope Flycatchers, there were lots of other Empids. I think Pewee, Hammond's, maybe Willow, and Dusky and/or Gray. Anyway, some pics

(May 2 edit) Talked with some experienced OC birders today and settled on what these birds are. Western Wood Pewee, Hammond's and Gray Flycatchers.
