Name That Bird!

When: late December
Where: rural farmland area of southern Sacramento County, California
What: Mystery bird, looks like a mockingbird, except slightly smaller and more gray. Likes to hang out in dense trees, such as magnolia (deciduous) and photinia (tall evergreen shrubs).
I have never heard this bird here before in the last 20 years!
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! Here is it's three note song:


  1. I don't know birds, but that sounds wonderful. Good luck!

  2. Not yet awake this morning! I should have credited that bird song ID to Eddie Pandolfino!
