Description

Dreadful photos - tiny beige birds amidst beige rocks far away across a field - but perhaps IDable after all, particularly the dark/white on the wings of the one landing. They apparently had been closer to the fence until 5 min before I arrived, but were spooked by a helicopter ("Classic!"). I was able to enjoy them through a scope, however. Ebird report(s) from the day before in this location: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S34073686

UPDATE 11/28: See Brenna's comment below!

UPDATE 10/18: Jeff Goddard says C. rickettsi via Flkr.

Persistence - I know this is the third time I've attempted to ID these guys and perhaps the verdict will also be a C. columbiana (found one of them today too, nice for comparison) -- which is OK -- BUT let me test your patience one more time:
1) No flecks on leading edge of cerrata
2) White on both rhinophores and oral tentacles (C. columbiana has more color)
And here's the link to Doug Mason's photos again for comparison: https://www.flickr.com/photos/39365853@N07/15700852369 and https://www.flickr.com/photos/39365853@N07/15886229132
Oh, and about 1/2" long.

Jeez, fish. Looks like the pic in the book, lacks the yellow eye of the yelloweye, and the face stripes of the canary.
