Pookey's Park, Hoopa, Humboldt County, CA
Rare bird for this area. Pair has been discovered (by Ron Eby) frequenting the telephone poles at the end of the road. Additional bird also being seen down the way on Dolan Rd.
While these are atrocious pictures, it is interesting to me that there is another information here to make an ID
Irvine Regional Park
Two seen during our Great Backyard Bird Count
