Unless the color is misrepresented in these photos, This is not a Tricolored. They are not brown and they do not have warm buffy brown color in the face. Further, females Trikes have a conspicuous grayish-white wing bar. I’ve also taken photos if many
Tricoloreds and have seen none that looked like this.

I've photographed Tricolored BB in the Klamath basin, but I believe their range extends throughout California and slightly north and south of the state, so Klamath isn't surprising. Malheur, on the other hand, is stretching the boundary just a bit ... but then Why not?
