I was in my yard the otherI was in my yard the other day and saw a medim sized, darkly colored bird in a nearby shrub. The reason I noticed it was the unusual series of calls it was making. The calls were as follows: Clicks, frog croaks, cricket sounds, duck quacks, goose honks, followed by a beautiful bird song. I know this sounds unbelievable, but it is absolutely true. I stood there and listened for several minutes while it went through the series of sounds many times. I laughed outloud when it did the goose and duck. I would love to know what kind of bird this is, does anyone know? I live in the Cameron Park, CA area if that helps.
