Seven daytime songs of a Brewer's Sparrow, each a second-long buzzy phrase followed by a second and a half series of repeated syllables. Perhaps you hear it as something like zrreeeeeeeee zir zir zir zir zir zir zir.
One thinks of the Brewer's Sparrow as inhabiting arid sagebrush, but as heard in this recording, this male has set up residence next to a delightful stream that drains the mountainside here.
Spotted towhee, lazuli bunting.
