My apologies about the poor quality, I push my point and shoot to max zoom for some of these.... but I'm hoping it's good enough for identification.

Initially thought it was a sparrow until I downloaded and took a better look. I did the visual search online and am not sure what it is. It's looks Thrush like though.



And while I'm here :)

Is this a Say's Phoebe? http://www.flickr.co...in/photostream/

After this weekend of being local and keeping my eyes open, I think I might have 3 more for my list. Yeah they're all really super duper common apparently, but new to me! LOL.

Starting a NEW gallery of my better bird shots. Not happy with Flickrs over-busy re-design.

Your first bird looks like a juvenile Western Bluebird, but yes, you're second bird is a Say's Phoebe.
