For fun, I ran them through BirdNet ( <>, Analysis of Audio Recordings). Unknown_CoastalScrub.wav it does indeed think is a Wrentit. For Unknown_Eucalyptus.wav, the results were … inconclusive. Purple Finch is in its list of possibilities. Keep in mind it is just looking at spectrograms without knowing location or anything else, so often the results are out there.

The attached WAV files were made using Audacity and amplified to the recommended -3dB level.

Highlights there were 1 California Thrasher (maybe 2) by the barn, and 2 Varied Thrushes (one seen, one calling) in the eucalyptus grove just before reaching the residences. Pine Siskins were abundant, as they seem to be everywhere this winter, with a tally of 134 for the day. Just 28 species on the day, with the most bizarre miss being American Robin.

The first was a warbling call high in the eucalyptus grove below the barns - I'm pondering Purple Finch, but I'm far from certain. The second was calling from coastal scrub well up the creek, and gave four even whistles, sometimes followed by a few rapid notes, and I'm just befuddled. Both feel like "I've heard these before, why can't I remember?!?" vocalizations.
