Observation details

Extremely rare. Heard initially in shrubs and small trees between the south side of the road and the trail. Perched for 30 seconds at road side, then moved higher to larger shrub/small trees, then flew across the trail to the south where I lost it. Huge bill on a yellow bird was first thing I noticed. Throat, breast and belly bright yellow. Contrasting dark wings with white wing bars and white spots on dark back. Head was yellowish but seemed less bright. Tail dark. Large, chunky grosbeak noticeably larger than BHGR and tanagers.
