Hi Heather. It's tough for me to make out features of these birds that I would like to be able to see for id'ing them. It's also tough to get a good sense of size of these birds.

My guesses range from a flycatcher, to female tanagers, to female goldfinches. So, as you can tell, I can't really give you an answer...

Could you give us some info on their back? From that page, here are my guesses:

1) My guess, looks kinda like a barn swallow, but they don't normally nest in holes... or better yet, they don't period. they build their nests (usually of mud, I think.)

2) The second we just had someone post shots of those. I forget the name now. It's a type of Quail.

4&5) Nice green heron. I love those birds, wonderful colors. But I bet people know that by now, my last three posts were of them.

Hi Eric- you confused me :-) In your post I didn't realize you were talking about the other pictures on Heather's gallery page and thought you were referring to the birds pictured above (nesting in holes? ...where did she mention that? etc, etc...).

Ok, I'll take my guesses on some of the photos on the page pointed at by Heather:

1. Tree swallows - these do nest in cavities, unlike barn swallows

2. California Quail

No. 28 in my gallery of North Mountain Park is a California Quail. They have a little round area planted with amaranth and sunflowers ( really nice ! ) that is supposed to be a bird attractor. It has some dead manzanita branchs or something in it as well, this quail was in it. It was very hard to focus on the bird and not scare it away. I always hear the warning and .........
they are gone. aranoid:
