Gorgeous day, so had to get out. Overall I was a little disappointed that the beginning of several days of north winds produced so few birds, but all it takes is one good one.

Literally the second bird of the morning. Flew across the trail just left (west) of the entrance. Saw the bright reddish tail, and wrongly assumed Myiarchus type. Bird was seen in plain view under excellent seeing conditions at a distance ranging from 30-60 feet for about 90 seconds. Large, stocky bird with a large head and very large bill. Striking face pattern included a very broad malar stripe. These features eliminate Piratic and Variegated. Eyestripe clean white, belly washed with pale yellow, eliminating Streaked. Boldly striped on sides, strongly barred on back. Bird tree hopped north while I started contacting people. Subsequent attempts to refind bird were unsuccessful. Very exciting to turn up an unusual bird, but mildly depressing when it won't stick around for others to enjoy.
