I have yet to see one! I hope someday to.

Go to Pinnacles National Park, we saw lots of them circling overhead as we enjoyed dinner in our campsite!

great !!

👍👍👍🙏🙏🙏🤗🤗👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🤗🙏👍

I believe the biggest threat to California Condors are Black Vultures and Turkey vultures. They are more economical scavengers and the Condors can't compete. Somehow the Vultures don't seem to be affected as much by lead. I guess they aren't politically correct.

Our own Xerónimo Castañeda captured this video of shorebirds at the Merced National Wildlife Refuge a few days ago. We often think about waterfowl in relation to these refuges, but in truth they're also very important for shorebirds. ...

Our bill to help California migratory birds in the face of the federal government's rollback of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act is in the Assembly's Water, Parks, and Wildlife Committee today. We're pushing hard, and we're optimistic about the vote. (Townsend's Warbler by Chao PC) ...

Sometimes a Peregrine will go after a Raven or a Crow. The photographer who took this cool image said this was a raven, but we're thinking maybe a crow. Either way, the black bird is having none of this. (Great photo by Nick Chill) ...

I have seen crows mob the hawks at my ranch...

Yea all I ever see is crows picking on hawks, so I yell at them. This doesn't help but it makes me look like a nut so I persist!

I am thankful that the crows convinced the hawk family to move from my tree. I have a little dog. More crows this year than last is a good thing. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I can observe a nesting red shoulder pair , the crows tend to ignore them

Go crow!

Rounded fan tail says raven to me

Raven beak comes out of head more

The little guy prevailed.

I think it's a crow also Ravens are bigger.

Crows suck. Just sayin'....

I have seen the ravens chase & attack even the eagles away from their nests. this dual continues just about every day if look up in the sky. ravens are the smartest birds around, can mimmick human sounds like a parrot in captivity.

Crows have a crescent. Wavens have a wedge.

It has the shaggy beard of a raven

Could be immature raven

i see scenes like this quite often here in the South Bay.

What's the first bird you saw today? Perhaps it was a Hooded Oriole. (photo by Teddy Llovet) ...

Nope, just my old friend Allen Hummingbird!😁

Yes I did. Soooo beautiful

Black Phoebe!

Costa’s Hummingbird, today and every day.

I saw my first hooded oriole yesterday. Today, the first bird I noticed was an extremely loud Orange Crowned Warbler which has been singing at SDSU for days now.

Juncos

Yes, we have Hooded Orioles. They are beautiful.

Somebody flipped me off in traffic this morning does that count?

Cassin's Kingbird in my yard in Claremont, CA.

Western Oriole ?

Gull

I don't know about Orioles but a Starling almost flew into me trying to get to the cat food I left outside.

Great way to start your day bird watching#LOVE2EARTH everyday!

Blue jay

Crows, Calabasas

Lots of Elegant Terns :)

Band tailed pigeon. They crack me up. 😊 Placerville

We've just moved. Now I see Robins every morning and all day long. Robins are really a rare sight in the SF Bay Area where we used to live. We used to see them from Spring to Fall. No more...

All I ever see is Egrets and occasionally a great heron.

Golden-crowned Sparrow. Only one among the White-crowned Sparrows. Cottonwood, Calif.

Egrets flying to their rookery a few blocks from me!

Mockingbird.
