 Curly - I lived in Southern Cal. (mostly in HB, BTW) for over 60 years and never once saw any Wren, let alone a Rock Wren. Maybe I was just oblivious?

Really?  I've seen Marsh, Bewick's, and House Wrens before but never a Rock Wren!  Of course, being unemployed for the past month and having a LOT of free time to go birding helps too!

These I see every day without even trying:

  • Rufous-collared Sparrow
  • Rufous-collared Robin
  • Eastern Bluebird
  • Great-tailed Grackle
  • White-eared Hummingbird
  • Magnificent Hummingbird
  • Black Vulture
  • Lesser Goldfinch

  • Rock Dove
  • Northern Flicker (Guatemalan Flicker)

During northern fall/winter, add these:

  • Ruby-throated Hummingbird
  • Wilson's Warbler
  • Townsend's Warbler
  • Yellow Warbler
  • Tennessee Warbler

And these I usually see at least once a week:

  • Steller's Jay
  • Common Ground Dove
  • Melodious Blackbird
  • Turkey Vulture
  • Barn Swallow
  • Bushtits
  • Buff-bellied Flycatcher
  • Wood-Pewees

 These are weeklies during northern fall/winter migration periods:

  • Mangrove Cuckoo (November-December)
  • American Kestrel
  • Baltimore Oriole (seeing far fewer of these this year than last year)
  • Yellow-billed Cuckoo (for a few weeks in October)
  • Black-vented Oriole (also seeing fewer this year)

I got House Wren and Bewick's Wren in So-cal... but I live in Colorado,  and have only got Rock Wren and Marsh Wren here.  I also got Wrentit in California, if that counts in a wrenish sort of way (W.i.n.o.-Wren In Name Only) Wink

Oh as for the list... different in Summer and Winter

Year round weekly:
House Finch, House Sparrow, Starling, Black-billed Magpie, Ring-billed Gull, Northern Flicker, Rock Pigeon, Eurasian Collared-Dove, American Robin, Am. Crow

Summer weekly:
Western Kingbird, Swainson's Hawk, Barn Swallow, Cliff Swallow, Mourning Dove, Common Grackle, Lesser & American Goldfinch, Red-winged Blackbird

Winter weekly:
Canada Goose, Red-tailed Hawk, American Kestrel, Bald Eagle, Dark-eyed Junco, Black-capped Chickadee

Usually get Blue Jay weekly only during Spring and Fall.

Not very impressive, so that's why I go out of my way (and sometimes way out of my way) to get birds!! Severe nausea (including some vomiting) for 6 hours out of a 12 hour boat ride [Pelagic Birding Trip] was a pain in the butt, but I got 14 lifers out of it (my two favorites: South Polar Skua and Red-billed Tropicbird). If you ever get a shot at seeing Red-billed Tropicbird, I highly recommend it-absolutely beautiful.  That is one bird you are not likely to see on a weekly basis Cool

Lifelist: 343 (340 starting 11/12/2010) 

Most Recent: Roseate Spoonbill, Western Sandpiper
