[Tweeters] RE: Magnuson Bushtit Oddity

Thank you for the many interesting responses to my question. As I don't know if your responses are posted on Tweeters so I am posting this note to tell you that the responses fall into 2 categories - a possible Verdin, which is the one I like best as it would be an usual sighting, and a forehead full of fluffy yellow pollen. What I saw did very much resemble an adult female Verdin, but I think the brick red color on the back of the wings was more towards the tips and relatively diffuse. The single picture from Stokes that I am looking at of an adult female Verdin shows a brick red spot on the upper back of the wing. I need to see more pics of adult female and immature Verdins. How many Verdins enjoy hanging in cold, wet, and marshy habitat? Also, the behavior was very bushtit like. They seem very unconcerned with people in relatively close proximity.
