I have had a few scattered individuals at my house in the Coast Range foothills west of Finley NWR for a couple of months. Also, for the last couple of days I have been hearing a rather large flock. Not certain on the type, but I will try to record them. I haven't seen them anywhere else in the Valley for months.
