just when I had this bird lined up for a shot it took off; assuming it is a warbler... any ID thoughts considering the poor quality of the picture
left and front
high up and flying over the drying beds
I actually did see a live coyote but by the time I saw it and got my camera up for a shot it was down over a hill and gone into the brush. But coyote scat was everywhere.
someday I would like to get a good picture of one of these little birds
this bird was very far away but it was calling and calling from this limb so came to my attention
I am not sure what kind of sparrow this is. I think both pictures are the same kind. They were all in a tree together but with distance and light conditions did not get any great pictures. any ID help appreciated.
I am going to edit this considering the comments, remove the second picture and the new ID applies only to the two birds on the left
hard to see these little birds on a grey day but the blue came through
I am thinking the one in front is a Lesser Yellowlegs and the one in back is a Greater Yellowlegs. The one in front looks smaller but if they were the same size birds should look larger... Also the one in the back has a slightly upturned bill.
a lot were around and providing some warnings about the hawks
the bill seems to have a slight upward turn; later I have an observation of what I think are both a Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs together
not at all sure on this ID
such a grey day, everything was grey as this bird flew over
