Chipping Sparrow Spizella passerina

Observer

Date

July 27, 2007

Description

Observed in a mixed flock with other sparrows, and juvenile bluebirds.

I suspect this is a juvenile chipping sparrow because of the dark eye-line, strongly forked ends of tail and dark marks on the beak.

Please help with additional ID suggestions.

American Coot Fulica americana

Description

A juvenile coot observed with about 8-10 others coots and some mallards.

It was very strange to be observing coots and mallards, hear and see red-winged blackbirds singing in such an extremely arid environment. The few feet of water depth in the dam drew these birds in from many miles away!

Date

August 25, 2013

Description

One of the many red-eared sliders found around this urban wetland.

Interesting that a majority of them are strongly melanistic. Note the length of this one's fore claws. This indicates it is a male.
