On 10/7/14 there was a blue colored bird perched on the bare top branch of
a deciduous tree off Glendale. Definitely not a Scrub or Steller's Jay or a
Mountain Bluebird, tail too short, end of tail was whitish, a skittish
bird, about 1:15 pm. I am identifying it as a Blue Grosbeak.
On 10/11/14 there was a cockatiel in a locust tree by an apartment complex
on Carville just off Sutro .It whistled continuously. About 9am. White
face, yellowish crest, 2 white wing patches, brown body and tail.
