Found this bird today mid morning, Northern California, lake Almanor area in front of the house in the bushes, there were two of them and they were making a clicking sound. Not a easily frightened bird never flew far from me. Thanks

Agreed. Dark-eyed Junco (Oregon Subspecies). You can identify them by their black or gray hood and their brown back and flanks.

That’s unusual for a Dark-eyed Junco to be in NC this time of year. Also, it looks like one of the western varieties not normally found in the east even during migration. Very interesting.

NC?  East?  The original post says 'Northern California'.
