- Reported Jul 23, 2020 11:51 by Libby Patten

- Map:,-119.8713662&ll=34.421439,-119.8713662

- Media: 1 Audio
- Comments: "Heard squeaky call notes and it occasionally popped out from reeds south of Phelps creek bridge. Couldn’t get a picture, but added a sound file (with some nearby construction noise). Pretty noisy bird. Vocalization style seems to indicate an immature bird, although its bill was a dark orange, more typical of an adult."
