Thanks to reader Tim Hadja for identifying both mystery birds!
The first mystery bird, he identified as a White-crowned Sparrow, which is a large Sparrow that likes open fields with brushy patches. He mentioned that they are one California’s most common winter birds. For more info on the White-crowned Sparrow follow this link.
The second mystery bird (the bird featured in the video) he identified as a Say’s Phoebe. He mentioned that it can found year round in Los Angeles, snacking on insects. For more information on the Say’s Phoebe follow this link .
