Description

Nesting individual nesting well within the subspecies distribution. From the Cornell Birds of North America species account:

Although 7 subspecies listed by Traylor (Traylor 1979b), at most 4 considered valid following Browning (Browning 1977b, Browning 1990), Rea (Rea 1983a), and Binford (Binford 1989a). Winter ranges and migration routes of these taxa largely unknown. (1) C. s. saturatus breeds from se. Alaska south through British Columbia to w. Oregon and is darker, more olive, with a blackish crown and yellow wash on throat and belly. (2) C. s. veliei breeds over most of species' range from e. Alaska south into n. Mexico and is more grayish than saturatus with crown not contrasting against back and with little or no yellow wash on underparts; names amplus and siccicola of Burleigh (Burleigh 1960b) considered synonyms under veliei . (3) C. s. peninsulae breeds in s. Baja California (Sierra de la Laguna) and is said to be paler with narrower grayish pectoral band, broader whitish edging to secondaries, wing and tail shorter, and bill longer and broader. Averages for peninsulae from Ridgway 1907: male wing 82.8 mm, tail 58.6 mm, culmen 12.9 mm, and female 80.9 mm, 57.4 mm, 14.1 mm respectively, compared with averages for both saturatus and veliei combined (then under name richardsonii) of male 87.4 mm, 66.0 mm, 12.9 mm, and female 82.8 mm, 62 mm, 12.7 mm respectively. (4) C. s. sordidulus breeds in highlands of Mexico and Central America and is smaller than northern subspecies (wing 7581.5 mm, averaging 79.3 mm in male, 79.8 mm in female; Ridgway 1907). The name griscomi is considered a synonym under sordidulus (Binford 1989a).

Description

I did not know this was here. Basically the only thing in flower right now. Shrubs around 2 m in height. I also note that there are few obs of this species in the region, perhaps the iNat algorithm is leading me into the weeds.
