What Kind Of Bird...?

If you've been following my blog you know I don't know much about birds so feel free to help me out and correct me if I'm getting these wrong. I haven't got a clue what the first one is. I was just happy I finally saw a bird I could photograph.

I think the one below is a Sparrow.

And the one below, I could be wrong, but it looks like a photo I saw of a Western Scrub Jay.

Wonderful bird photos! And very interesting to me because you have different species out there in SoCal... :)

Spetacular capture here.

I love the blue

The top one looks like a Phoebe, but it is not a bird I know well, plus you live in the west and I'm in the east. I've never gotten a good shot of one and this is great! The middle one is a White Crowned of the prettiest sparrows. These are all very good! Keep watching and photographing the birds and you'll know all of your regulars in no time :-)

Not sure about that first one... I think it's some sort of flycatcher, but not sure it's a Phoebe with that yellow on the breast?

Great captures! :c)

Thanks to all of you! I'm living and learning. One of these days when I have a better zoom they'll bet as clear as some of yours.

Yellow-rumped (Audubon's) warbler, winter plumage;
white-crowned sparrow; western scrub jay, yess!
Nice work. Getting any warbler in the sights and focused is a feat. Such fun, though!

Eee! Eee! Eee!
