Here are two maps for comparison. First is Juniper Titmouse. There are no records in eBird west of what the map shows.

The next is of Oak Titmouse. There are no records east of what this shows:

There are no records for Oak Titmouse in Nevada according to the Nevada Bird Records Committee (or in eBird for that matter). As the map shows, Adel is due north of the Nevada state line.

As far as I know there are no known specimens or otherwise proven Oak Titmouse east of California and the s. Klamath River of Oregon and all the ones in Nevada are considered Juniper.

I’m not sure if anyone has studied the ones in Lake County Oregon but I’m not sure why they’d be presumed Oak. That said, there is very little Juniper T population in nw Nevada according to the state atlas and I’m not sure where the populations connect.

Joel, what’s the status around Sheldon?

Also, is there any real evidence those Adel area birds are actually Juniper... they are almost certainly hybrids or just Oak.
