Both seen this morning in So Cal. My IDs are in the spoiler tag below. If correct, these are new yard birds (I've seen them before elsewhere).

With the lack of rufous on the tail and edges of primaries on the Thrush, I'd have to say Swainson's. The empid? :rolleyes: As always, voice is the best way, but I'm guessing Hammond's because it seems to have a shortish bill and tail. Of course, angle of shot can affect that. I see while I was typing, someone else came on and chose the same birds! Good.
(I finally nailed an Alder down here in Panama by getting a video of it calling. I was torn between Willow and Alder. I saw it/them first last fall and this northern migration was to be my last chance. I'm stoked to finally ID the liitle blighter!)

Thanks both. Good day at home. I've also since added Phainopepla and House Wren as new yard birds.
