    Comments: their flight call sounds much more blackbird-like than Eastern birds; they also seem to giving the churlee call more and it sounds more Western Tanager like (i.e., some stacatto tone) and less like a vireo

  27. Number observed: 2
  28. Number observed: 1

    Comments: molting juv seen well; is it rare here? Seen very well: Spizella sparrow with long notched tail, warm reddish brown back and wings, dark eyeline extending through lores, crown with rufous cast, gray head and body (not buff) and contrasting strongly with back and wings (unlike Brewer's). Flight call giving on group a strident 'tseeet' that I consider diagnostic.
