Heard unusual sound coming from underbrush beside Molina Basin parking lot, so kept going further in. First saw male NOCA, but it was silent, so I kept looking for the source of the sound. Very surprised to see female NOCA sitting on a nest, about 7 or 8 feet away, making the unusual sound. She left, so to record the proper breeding code, I carefully approached the nest to see if there were any nestlings. Without disturbing any branches, I used my iPhone's camera to quickly take a confirmation photo of the 2 nestlings then immediately left.
