I really am very new at this, only started this June, and I do a lot of second guessing on my IDs. These were all spotted this morning in Prado Regional Park in Chino, California. Please confirm or correct my IDs, and there are a couple I have no clue about, like #9, 13, 14 (same bird) and 15 and 16. Thank you so much. I do have to say this was our (me and my husband) biggest outing and just so much fun. I had to include the Great Egret and TV pics even though I'm sure of them, because I thought they were neat.

On #18, Hutton's Vireo was my second guess, but went with the Blackpoll. At least I was in the ballpark. Thanks. On #9, I thought it might be House Finch, Female.

I'm leaning toward the Brewer's, I think the Grackle has a lighter eye color (from pics I've seen).

MWM. Yes it is. There were so many birds there today. There were 4 Turkey Vultures sitting in a tree with a Great Egret. I thought that was kinda funny too. Then the Turkey Vultures took off flying and within minutes there were so many TVs circling, I counted at least 15. Here's a pic of some of them, we could not get them all in the viewfinder there were so many.
