I am new to this site and it was recommended to me from a flickr group. I recently spotted 2 birds and I'm having some trouble identifying. I am not good with shorebirds and the other one was a surprise.
Here is the shorebird. All three photos are the same bird. These were taken at the end of November in Southern California.
This next one was a surprise. I didn't have my contacts and thought I was taking a picture of a Western Kingbird (there was one there and I have that photo), but these look different. One suggested ID was a Cedar Waxwing.
Thank you for your help!
