No problem, Pat!-I see by what you have identified, that I may have posted a Female Adult Red Shafted and not a Male Yellow Shafted after all, they are--as Gord has suggested, a bit hard to identify (for a neophyte like myself) trying to tell the difference--I have been waiting for this bird to return, however got the Bushtits today instead--a good substitute for me!---Al
Good shot of this guy! Ive only ever seen a handful of ones like this, and several sort of inbetweeners.
Al, considering the strong yellow in the tail of the bird you got a shot of, I think it's very likely to be a yellow-shafted. Id be surprised if it had a red-shafted head on it even though reading in the Sibley's guide these two sub-species hybridize.
