NOTES: (Breeding Status: Unknown. Gen. Climate: Arid. Cover Density: Medium.) Counter 006-026 - pretty squeaky.
From a small flock of foraging birds in the nearby trees, I am recording one of the bushtits. The nesting activity for the season is over, but there are probably family groups in the flock. This bird was calling between hunting efforts in the oak tree. I wonder if the call is flock contact, feeding or both.
