    California 2017 Whatbird Big Year

    In a 12 day trip to Santa Barbara to visit family and bird almost every day I managed to add one species to this list: Wilson's Phalarope - one at Goleta Slough Ecological Reserve, Santa Barbara County, on June 18, and a small flock of about 15 there on June 20.

    Heermann's Gull Age

    Okay, thanks.

    How bad can the photo be?

    That's definitely a Hooded Warbler. You can see the white outer tail feathers and the extensive black throat.
  11. Coal Oil Point, Santa Barbara County, California, June 18, 2017 Obviously, this is not an adult bird. I believe it is a first year based on the lack of a buffy tip to the tail. Is this correct, or possible to say? Should I report is as immature or juvenile to eBird?I heard about Heermann's Gulls undergoing breeding failure this year on their stronghold nesting island. Any idea how many young were successfully fledged?

    Herring/Lesser Black-backed Gull, NY

    Okay, best to leave it unidentified I guess. Thanks.

    What bird is this? Did it need help?

    It's a fledgling, looks like maybe a European Starling. The best thing to do for the bird would be to leave it where you found it, at most move it a few feet out of harm's way, and let the parents take care of it.
