Identify this songbird


Watched a pair on birdfeeder today. It is about the size of the Eastern Bluebird. The male has iridescent blue on the top of the head. The female is drab and the eyes look like the eyes on a dove. Unable to get a photo. Any ideas?

On a related note, saw my first scissortail kite yesterday in Kinder. Beautiful one.

Backpacker has demos at the LSU lakes and somewhere in the Laffy area on Saturdays. You get what u pay for. I have an Emotion Glide that is about 10' sit-in. I really like it and it tracks well. Do your research, and don't just buy because it is cheap.

I just got a Sibley guide to birds in from Amazon. I am tired of seeing birds and having no idea what they are...

The blue was darker and confined to the top to the head.

Ibird app.

Trust me. Get the pro version. It's got everything all the bird books you could buy will have plus songs, pics, paintings, a search function by every fricking feature a bird could possibly have.

I've got a lot of bird books and I haven't touched one since getting Ibird pro for Iphone. Nor have I ever been this good at ID'n birds.

You can turn on their vocalizations and actually freak the damn things out. I had Carolina wrens or whatever they are practically landing on my head trying to find the bird they were hearing.

It's amazin.

Black-throated Blue Warbler? But I don't think their range includes LA.

I've mentioned it a few times on here but this ain't exactly a birding forum so it comes up about as often as the sailing threads I eagerly pounce on when they happen.
