    I need to pay more attention to birds I think might be sparrows. Good catch on that one.

    Re: Can you help ID this bird please?

    Can you tell if this is a Bushtit or a Wrentit from this image? The head was buff, and the back was a grayish color. Looked kind of blue/gray in the sun. Very long tail. Possibly some faint striping on the belly, but my images were too blurry to be certain. By the time I figured out why my lens wasn't focusing, he flew off.

    @wev Thanks. I thought it might be a wrentit at first, but wasn't sure. Seems like the wrentit has more gray on the head. This one is more buff. OK, going with Bushtit as a new bird in my backyard.

    Definitely a lousy image - was only testing this lens due to issues with the AF. This was a new bird that I've never seen, and it gave off a chirp that was completely unrecognizable to anything I've ever heard. Any idea what it is?

    And what are the lines on the right side? Eye lashes? Whiskers?

    Size? Was it monotone in color?

    Bigger than a sparrow but smaller than a robin. Yes, pretty much monotone. It flew from one branch to this location so it wasn't ideal to get a decent image.

    Did it have a blue/black cap on its head Cindy? Looks like a Grey Catbird to me, but I'm usually wrong.

    That was actually my first thought -- a fledgling juvenile maybe? I can sort of see some crown cap darkening

    I never saw the back or top of its head. It kept its eye on me the entire time by always facing me. Here is another pic which I lightened even more. Although it looks kind of buff-colored, it really was more greyish. I've seen people locally post images of catbirds so I know they are around - and when I saw it, I wondered if that's what it might be.

    The greens on my PC are horrible. So there's some magenta showing up from post processing as I tried to cut down the green tint.
