An early migrant coming up from the western coast of mainland Mexico and lower Baja. They seek out the shady understory of trees in parks and backyards. A few stick around, but most make their way up to forested mountain canyons for the summer. Usually heard before seen, the call is described as “high and thin, with three distinct repeated phrases tsip, klseewi, ptik.” As of this morning (3/31) there’s one hanging out on the 1/4 mile trail at the nature center.
