But what type of Evening Grosbeak were you listening to in the Sierras?

Here is an article on the call types

Up in Klamath I have recorded type 1, and type 2 in the very same spot.

Examples of the call types here

For what it's worth, I was in the eastern Sierras last weekend, west of Bridgeport, and heard multiple Evening Grosbeaks calling. The strident, downslurred pheeuw! call I heard today seemed an exact match.

Having spent the morning with him, i will say he was remarkably silent. I was surprised by how quiet he was compared to black-headed and rose-breasted's i've seen, that have always been very vocal. I was a little disappointed not to have heard his call, but at least got a few pics.

SF Birders If that Evening Grosbeak is being vocal, it would be cool if someone could record calls and upload to eBird and or Xenocanto. Just like Red Crossbills, Evening Grosbeaks have vocal “types.” I recall there are about 4 of them, with 3 possible in the West. The Evening Grosbeak is a little less confusing than the crossbills, as different call types have separate breeding ranges. But in the non-breeding period they can be found in the same places. I am sure there is some spot where you can download the various call types to have a reference, but don’t know that for sure offhand.
