Excellent but brief looks as this continuing rarity foraging deep in grass and piles of plant/tree debris along east bank of river. Bright white supercilium; bold white streaks about the face; very warm brown overall (vs. BEWR); shorter tailed than BEWR, but tail not held almost constantly cocked up (vs. HOWR); bold black barring on clean white UnT coverts. The bird became agitated (no audio or pishing used), and began giving a very raspy scold, not entirely unlike a HOWR, but stronger and sharper; this call is not to be confused with SIWR's "socket wrench" ratcheting call, or its song.

Continuing; eating hackberries in area of large willow trunk that crosses main trail (north of junk cars). Large Turdus thrushes; rufous on mantle and much rufous on breast/sides of breast (lower belly white); distinctive orange orbital ring and white throat with prominent black streaking. First detected by high-pitched "seet" flight/contact calls (recordings of which are embedded in a previous checklist from Fri 1/19/18).
