hmmm. Really thought it was one of the two. 

Orange-crowned Warbler?

Nope.

Don't forget to let others have a guess before guessing back to back. We don't want to monopolize the game and use up everyone else's guesses. 😉

Sorry, didn't realize i did!

No worries, you're not the only one to get caught up with multiple guesses. It's not a big deal but it is easily overlooked if we don't watch out for it.

Clue #1.

This colour related bird is found in the east and builds it's nest near the ground in a shrub or young tree.

Clue #2

The female of this species defies the colour related hint in the first clue.

 

Clue #3 

While the male and female differ in colours, they both share the same unique ID feature.

Yup!

Among many other interesting eccentricities, this passerine bird, like ducks, molts all its flight feathers at the same time, rendering it incapable of flight for a period.

A famous naturalist devoted a chapter to this species (referring to it by a different name than is used now) in his book about the natural wonders of California.

Im not sure anyone would notice if the Greater Roadrunner moulted all it's flight feathers all at once since they don't usually fly, but that's my guess since I have no other ideas.

 

Never mind, I see my mistake.

That the Roadrunner is not passerine?

Our current suspect will be found more in streams than highways.
