One very bright individual, but rectrices lacked white seen in BHVI. Others dull, but each had yellowish wash in flanks and yellowish-edged primaries.

Probably more, never got close to them.

Counted carefully, just happened to land on 20.

1

Heard only, but only from 15 m or so. Rapid rubbery babble call in leafy forbs within 5 m of Santa Cruz itself. I waited 15 minutes but it would not emerge, and I had to get going. Separated from House and Bewicks's by rapidity of chatter and squeakiness and rubberiness of call. From Pacific by more liquid sqeakiness to call, Pacific sounds drier to my ear.
