and Wrentit are
notorious for staying hidden in dense vegetation. Bird seemed closer than
singing YBCH in background, and I have not ever heard YBCH make this type
of call. I do recall this call being very similar to the calls of WREN I
heard as a youth while backpacking where I grew up in Ventura Co., CA,
southern California. Other sounds: YBCH & WEWP, singing, BHGR calls."
