Pacific/Winter Wren

Found by Chris Neri. Bird could not be identified as either species by visual appearance. I only heard the call note once. The call was good for Pacific Wren (although I was unfamiliar with the call, I listened to a recording at the time. The call was sharp and dry unlike the husky note of Winter Wren). There were Winter Wrens in the vicinity that were calling, which gave good contrast. The reason I list it as a slash is due to my inability to distinguish the two species at the time of observation. If the bird was more cooperative and I heard the call note more than once I would probably be able to call it a Pacific (based on the original recordings by C. Neri, I believe this bird to be a Pacific Wren).
