after the two observations of this species with location data from SCZ, the next most southern observation on MO is from Sonoma County.
I would expect that it is on Mount Tam or somewhere similar in Marin.
Given that it is in Santa Cruz County, I would expect it also to be somewhere in San Mateo Co. perhaps near Butano.

Perhaps someday someone will find it in the deep, dark douglas-fir and redwood forests of northern Monterey Co., underneath trees that also hold southern sentinels of the Pileated Woodpecker…
