    Equipment Note

NOTES: A group of at least five birds, apparently a family, clearly seen together in a Coffeeberry (Rhamnus californica) bush at edge of riparian corridor along Coon Creek Trail; birds were 1-3 m up and 2-6 m (usually 2-4 m) away in a 5 m-tall bush; the undergrowth here was quite dense with Thimbleberry (Rubus parviflorus), Arroyo Willow (Salix lasiolepis), etc.; I ÒspishedÓ at break in tape to see if birds would call more frequently, but it had no apparent effect; only natural part was copied. A Turkey Vulture flying low overhead in latter part of the cut may have elicited some of these calls; this recording undoubtedly focused on more than one individual in this group; clear, sheltered from wind in canyon bottom, and in the upper 60s.
