Overcast and cool but light easterly winds. Survey from south of the visitor's overlook restrooms - got lucky as the Eastern Phoebe was active for about ten minutes. Also seen by Lee-Hong Chang below on the Crestline trail.

    Comments: Continuing bird found by Dominik Mosur on Feb. 23. Initially in brush cover but then well seen intermittently as it worked the scrub on the slope below for about ten minutes. Made sharp chip call once before it flew but did not sing. Plump phoebe with white underparts, grayish brown upper parts with darker head. Did not appreciate in initial observation the pale yellowish belly that appears in the photos.

    Comments: All of the WcSp are probably local nuttalli (two in particular at the edge of the parking area were completely unbothered by the stream of tourists) but there was just one singing in the local dialect.
