A rare bird for western California. A birder standing trail-side pointed him out to me and my daughters this morning in Henry Cowell Redwood S.P. near Santa Cruz. I was told the rangers think he was blown off course in a storm and ended up in the park. He seems to be happy in his new home — unfortunately the rangers believe him to be solo.
