As I wander in the timber here in the mountains late May through August I here this bird singing "heebe jeebe jeebe . Drives me nuts to see one and learn what it is called ! I do see some Juncos in the woods but not singing ! In conifers at 4500 to 6000 feet . Any ideas ?

Sounds like Junco's, more like Beebeebeebeeb.

I think you were hearing juncos too. I have some juncos here all year and huge numbers during parts of the Fall and Winter.

Sounds like a bird I always heard called a pinon squawker.

Kinda blue gray color. like crows they seem to travel in small groups.

Download an app called Merlin. It identifies birds by sound.

Keith and Danny I don't think it is those . I did see one Chickadee near this sound . I am familiar with their early spring song and it could be a new one for later . I will get the Merlin app . Thanks to you all .

Yup.Years ago before I figured out what they were,,,I even called them "heebe,,,,jeebe birds". That's why I knew right away what the OP was referring to. smile

Yote trapper and upstate ,no that is not the right sound . The habitat is lodgepole pine ,doug fir and ponderosa pine ,the bird obviously likes the trees as I have never heard it in the openings . Thanks for helping . I listened to every common bird song on merlin that I see in this area and so far ------ .We are wood cutting for 2 days late this week so I will report .
