Mega-rarity occurrence of this bird in California. Was heard for two weeks, calling nightly, before homeowners reported the bird to local birders. By the next day, people from all over the state descended on this home to hear it call. The owners welcomed birders for another week, until they shut down access. It's unknown how long it stayed.
This is a seedling . Note that the needles were sharp pointed , unlike nearby Douglas-Fir .
