BeVi in LA (winter) tend to be slippery rascals....similar to winter Bewick's Wren here.....they pop up then dive down just as quickly and it may be a long while before you see them again (or is it just me?).,.,,
on two different septembers i witnessed BeVi migrating south through their "expected" routes in Texas and on both occasions they were not skittish and quite vocal....
just thought of another notably skittish winter lingerer: Yellow-breasted Chat.
