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.
