I have several of these guys (gals?) at my feeder.
It looks like a purple rolypoly.
Is it laying eggs?
A female specimen probably with respiratory and eye infections
Did a full life-cycle web album of them growing on my back deck.
This had a white head as well as the white tail and caused a flock of seagulls to scatter in panic. It was a bit larger than our usual hawks.

Approximately 60 red eared sliders seen at the UCLA botanical gardens
In lilac verbena plants in my front yard
Our family enjoyed your exhibit on the eco-systems in Los Angeles. We are forwarding you photos of some smaller birds that a few weeks back started building a nest in our outdoor room in Venice, CA. The nest is behind an outdoor speaker mounted near the ceiling. These photos were taken April 2nd at 11:45 a.m. We wonder what kind of birds these are - they are perhaps a type of sparrow with tan colored feathers and we presume the male has the brighter color chest with some red feathers on it.
It’s been fun listening to the birds beautiful tweeting and it makes it feel like spring is in the air!"

UPDATE: On April 5 Michelle said, "Just this morning I could see that birds have hatched and there are 2 or 3 little ones in the nest now." She also send over a photo of one of the House Finches stranding on a utility wire. "Once we leave the yard it then goes into the nest."
