Chamaea fasciata
      Wrentit Song

The Wrentit is actually neither a wren NOR a tit, as the name might imply. Just where this bird fits into scientific nomenclature has been debated as long as it has been known to science. These small skulking birds, while often difficult to see, are more easily found by their unique songs echoing down from chaparral covered slopes. Often, when they come into view, it is only brief glimpses we get to meet them eye-to-eye.
