Observations

  1. California/Gambel's Quail

    Number observed: 2

    Comments: I heard 2 quail in the underbrush and I saw the female. It looked like a California to me. I briefly considered Gambel's but it looked and sounded so "normal" that I wrote it of as a California. It is the fact that Gambel's appears to be the common one according to ebird that made me doubt myself. They were in the dense vegetation along the marsh trail.

    Comments: heard. 0n marsh trail, near an observation platform with some very dense vegetation. At first I was wondering what type of thrasher could be in such habitat. then I realized that only a chat would be likely. Several strange chucks and other strange "thrasher-like sounds" with wide spaces between calls. have a recording on my camera. I'm thinking it is too large of a file to upload directly on to ebird, but can be supplied upon request. I tried to get a tour group to listen for it, but I think they were probably unsuccessful. Here is a link to the sounds. https://vimeo.com/263738067
