I was putting stuff into my car at about 7 am this morning and heard a
Dickcissel fly over (actually moving south from the bay into my
neighborhood). I have heard hundreds of these guys in the state of Veracruz
and so am very familiar with their distinctive "farting" (electric buzzer or
raspberry, if you prefer) call note. It called twice and was headed for the
large grove of Eucalyptus located between Skyline and Rosina, just east of
Pecho in Los Osos.
