Here are some more Warbler and Sparrow pictures from the past week or so. A few of these birds will stay for the winter but most are just passing through.
Yellow-rumped Warblers are still the most common species we are seeing. I saw dozens of them in a 2 hour walk.
Is this one listening for something or peeking under a leaf?
There were two Palm Warblers among all the Yellow-rumps.
I still have trouble with Sparrow identifications and get a second or even third opinion in many cases. See for yourself. The names are under the pictures.
This Dark-eyed Junco is a member of the sparrow family. But not the “little brown bird” branch!
Juncos are just starting to move into the area and a few have been at my feeder. They move down from the mountains for the winter so they are a sign of what’s coming my way in month or so.

They are amazing birds, even not easy to ID some time as the one we have in these parts of the world. Great capture!
This is why eBird has “sparrow sp.” as an option when reporting your sightings! Our unofficial name is “LBB” (Little Brown Bird).
