Photos from 01/02/18, La Mesa (San Diego), Ca. I saw a bird (01/01/18) that looked like a juvenile white crowned sparrow but had a streaked breast. I didn't have bins or a camera and as soon as the bird saw me it took of. Not sure what it was, but it got out looking the next day for it. I did not see it, but I happened across this bird. I was thinking about it being a song sparrow, but I'm thinking too much color. I guess I accidentally rolled my shutter speed the wrong direction .... Sorry for the bad photos. I'm thinking Lincoln Sparrow? Not a lifer, but a new yard bird.
9/9/2017 Northern Delaware Not sure what can be done for this little guy. He showed up, yesterday and spent most of the day around my yard. I was on the ground, fending for himself against the aggressive cowbirds. Nights have been in mid-low 50's already. I have a feeling that the winter i s going to be wetter than normal since the summer has, here.
This is another small bird that I have seen flying around in the hedge and bushes in my backyard. Always moving, very hard to get a good photo. Never certain what this bird was until last week I saw a glimps of red on his crest for a split second. I then concluded that it must be a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet. Thanks for your help. Alan
