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.

Thanks PlanB: almost all birds that I rarely see.

BobDa, is the last one a Say's Phoebe? I guess they are pretty common for all of you but not for me.

First thing to look for on a Dusky is the beak hook.



Do you ever feel you're being watched?

I was pleased as punch to get this photo this morning in front of my house, although he's not showing its most characteristic feature..

I'm in my sunroom, on TheBigMac (that has actual stereo speakers) and there's a meadow lark up in an aspen right outside my window. Soooo. . . it's singin' its song and I found this YouTube and played it. The little guy replied. Everytime the YouTube sang, the little guy replied. We did it, back and forth, for about 5 minutes.

What a thrill.



Well. . . maybe you had to be there.

Reilly, are those Clark's Nutcrackers in that tree?

And if so is that a photo shop?

Night Heron's? What the hell are those?

John, did you count all seven of them? No shopping of the specious variety - just some judicious dodging.

Wow you guys, lots of fun shots above. Empids, woodies, the bible, "surf" birds, dirtbags, Clarke's, bird sex, Sandhill's, bathing Tanny's, nice.

I've got a couple from today. I'm saving my Pelagic (Spring Pelagic 5/3/14) shots till the eBird list is posted.

I spent 45 minutes trying to get a decent Warbling Vireo shot. Mini epic and not too successful. Best of effort.

The Swainson's Thrushes are abundant. It's a soft "Whit."
