Subject: [obol] Nehalem mystery recording - may not be a bird but reminds me of Abert's Towhee
Hi all, Is there anyone who wants to guess what bird or mammal made this
repeated call note today at Nehalem Bay State Park. The location was at
the south end of the day use parking lot in the corral area which is on the
sandy spit between the river and ocean. The mystery caller was deep in the
tangle of broom shrubs - on the ground - and moving around. The call would
repeat every 30 seconds and I chased it for around 10 minutes without
seeing what was making the sound as it was always under cover. It reminds
me of an Abert's Towhee. What might make this loud, bright, high-pitched
sound?

Good birding, Beverly
