These were taken at 2 different locations in Northern CA. I'm spent too much time looking at them and can't decide what they might be.

Thanks for any input.

Thanks, I also found a match online which I hadn't earlier http://ridgefieldbir...R_09-29-08.html

I knew it had to be a common bird but most photos of the golden-crowned seemed quite different.

Much appreciated.
