White-breasted Nuthatch - Sitta carolinensis Joshua Jaeger 2016-08-13 Poway, San Diego County, California, San Diego (United States) (220 m) call -

There was at least one Nuthatch seen on the bird-watching trip today. The one in the recording was first seen near the trail junction between Blue Sky and Lake Poway, and it proceeded down the trail at roughly the same pace as me, then began foraging in the eucalyptus tree at the end of the trail where it leads out of the forest and towards Lake Ramona. It's possible there were two individuals on the trail because I thought I could vaguely hear another one calling off in the distance towards Lake Poway, but I was not certain. The individual in this recording may very well be the same one I had been repeatedly seeing for the past couple weeks at Lake Poway. Normally that bird is seen at Lake Poway in the evening, then by sundown, flies towards Blue Sky.

Very little editing, slightly increased volume. Recording from a pair that showed up in our yard, one (presumably male) singing this repeatedly, usually from atop o relatively prominent perch. Pair investigating cavities. Other recordings from this bird & its mate to follow -- calls. From a region where sub-species boundaries are still being investigated, though Mono birds seem to all be tenuissima (?)
