That’s a really short bill for a Hairy...

I know, but I've never seen a Downy 1.5 times the size of a Nuttall's. 

What were you thinking? Hybrid? weird Downy? I did take a bunch if photos and have audio of the Peek! call

Here is the checklist with the photos and audio

While there are a few photos that have a Hairy feel to it, especially some of the first ones, and some fields Marla match up, something seems off. Also, the audio is weird. It sounds like NUWO. I’Ve never heard a Hairy, at least on the west coast, make a call like this. I would put this on the ID forum. It might be something like a different subspecies, or another hybrid.

A flock of Canada’s just flew over my house (as they usually do this time of day) and there was a snow goose with them. Instead of reaching for my camera I reached for my binoculars instead so that was dumb! 
We’ll see if it gets confirmed but it’s the first time I’ve ever seen one.
