      Lowell sent me the photos; not enough of the bird shows to be definitive, to
      me at least. But I think it should be checked out. I'll be happy to
      forward the photos to anyone.

      This bird was larger than several BRBLs near it. It was sitting in plain
      view facing me. It constantly pumped its tail up and down. A large truck
      went by and the bird moved deeper into the small tree that it was sitting
      in. I managed to get two digi-scoped pictures of the bird in which some of
      it can be seen. I wanted to get the bird out of the deep cover so I got my
      iPod and played the COGR call and the bird flew out of the tree, across the
      road and up the hill.

      I hung around for about half an hour. Twice, it landed on the road side
      fence about 100 feet from me. Each time a vehicle came along and scared the
      bird off before I could get a picture of it.

      The bird was first seen at 13335 Simms Rd. in Tuolumne County. I last saw it
      flying up the hill towards 13301 Simms Rd.
