What Palm Tree is this?

I just moved to a property in Fallbrook, CA. There are 2 beautiful and huge palms on the property. I've scanned Google and haven't been able to find out what species of palm this is. They're identical, and planted right next to each other. About 30 ft tall, and just as wide at the canopy.

Neat side note; squirrels live in the tree. They pick the seeds and toss them on the ground to "clean house" and feed other critters. I've gathered some seeds up to sell, or grow a few in pots to sell later. It's a very attractive feature of the property.

Thanks for the help,

Canary Island Date is my guess,  Phoenix canariensis.  The thorns at the base of the leaves are an indicator.

That is very helpful. One of those thorns punctured my glove and got me good while I was trimming the dead stuff. So I guess it is a Canary. Thank you.
