Description

Seen with Matt Hafner while working through a flock of warblers, both Myrtle and Palm were in the mix, Matt called Myrtle and I call Palm(based on the back end of the bird - yellow under tail coverts and the tail pumping, and Matt's call was based on the obvious forward part of the bird). Quickly we realized something was off, including rust tones in the cap. Photos taken with a Nikon Elf through a pair of 8x42 Pentax. Matt forwarded the pictures to Micheal O'brien who reached the same conclusion we had. Matt wrote a paper regarding the observation, although I am not sure it was ever published.

So cool to finally find this cool & very localized k-rat after so many attempts. Never seen a k-rat with such crazy ears before!
Foraging under very dense chamise (Adenostoma fasciculatum) chaparral, as is typical of this species
Note huge (!), rounded ears, quite narrow face with almost no bulging in between the eyes (as is typical of D. venustus/agilis/simulans group), and darker grayish brown coloration (compared to D. heermanni)

Saw several individuals at this site, an impressively large taxon (I reckon third in size for the CA k-rats after D. ingens and D. deserti)
