IMO these photos are pretty convincing.

The location along a creek coming out of desert mountains is certainly the habitat that Woodhouse's Jays like.  The birds that Gabrielson and Jewett saw were likely a failed range extension by some pioneering birds.

Here’s a link to Matt Hunter’s post form October 2017 with links to photos at the bottom.  Apparently the comparison birds are from Monterey. []

There were pictures posted on Obol of some of the cabinet specimens. I don't recall the verdict, or who opined. I believe there are feather-based DNA tests that would reduce the debate. While it seems curious that no further detections have occurred in southern Harney County in the ensuing century, G&J collected a titmouse in that vicinity as well. Despite a growing extent of juniper and exponential increase in birder effort there have been no additional titmice reports.

Have these specimens been reviewed recently?
