Evening Grosbeak - Hesperiphona vespertina Type 2 call type Brad Dawson 2010-12-26 San Bernardino National Forest (near Big Bear), San Bernardino, California, San Bernardino (United States) (2100 m) call -

Female bird observed at the Big Bear Discovery Center. This site has a feeding station but during the 20 minutes or so of observation she stayed near the tops of the pines and junipers. Photos are available. It sounds like a type 2 call type to me (based on the wonderful article Evening Grosbeak Call Types by Nathan Pieplow in Earbirding.com, March 21, 2010, http://earbirding.com/blog/archives/1601). Some car and people noises were filtered out.
