@anonsally was asking for bird photos from my and my partner in crime’s current trip to the mountains; I’ll probably share some bird photos later, but this morning’s (windy) hike involved a singing Brewer’s sparrow and green-tailed towhee, so I took some video.

I needed to use a wind screen on the camera. I actually have one, but left it in the car. Apologies; I’m a video newbie.

Swallows and swifts

@lies said: 

“On your black-and-white birds, did you look at white-throated swifts? Because that’s sort of what your description sounds like.”

Aha! Yes! That must be what they were. Nothing else seems to look even close to right. Thank you!!! 

(It now occurs to me that I should have checked eBird to see what other people had reported… though I couldn’t have done it there because of being mostly unplugged. I’ve just checked now, and a few days ago someone did report the white-throated swift in Pinnacles, and even on the trail we took.)

I am really very bad at distinguishing swallows and swifts (either between those two larger types or different species within one of them). In this case, I was further confused by the fact that there are definitely also violet-green swallows at the park, but I don’t know whether I saw any–it’s likely that not all of the swifts/swallows I saw were the same species, especially since the second day, which is actually when I was able to make out this black-and-white underside, we hiked through a slightly different habitat. 

Thanks again!

Not that you (or anyone) should want to watch me talk for an hour about identifying swallows and swifts, but you can, if you really want to, do exactly that. What a time to be alive, huh?

All three snowy plover chicks at Carpinteria State Beach are still going strong. I shot this video of them and their dad this morning.

Maximum cuteness.
