2014_12_10 at Village Creek Drying Beds

Through our local Audobon Society learned that this drying bed that the city had allowed to totally dry out was once again being provided water. The local group had a walk there which I joined for a little time. I probably would learn more staying with the group but taking pictures is more productive in solitude. While there were not nearly the number of migratory water birds I have seen in the past, the date and the dry beds probably had lead to many continuing their journey. However, it was a wonderful day. Unfortunately it stayed over cast and gray all morning so it didn't lead to great photographs but good enough for identification in most cases.

Descrição

I am thinking the one in front is a Lesser Yellowlegs and the one in back is a Greater Yellowlegs. The one in front looks smaller but if they were the same size birds should look larger... Also the one in the back has a slightly upturned bill.

Descrição

I am not sure what kind of sparrow this is. I think both pictures are the same kind. They were all in a tree together but with distance and light conditions did not get any great pictures. any ID help appreciated.

I am going to edit this considering the comments, remove the second picture and the new ID applies only to the two birds on the left

I actually did see a live coyote but by the time I saw it and got my camera up for a shot it was down over a hill and gone into the brush. But coyote scat was everywhere.

just when I had this bird lined up for a shot it took off; assuming it is a warbler... any ID thoughts considering the poor quality of the picture
