Green Tail Towhee – Descanso (3500 feet).
Just saw a Green-tailed Towhee outside my window, in Descanso, CA. This is a first ever – I had to look it up to be sure. Two bad pics from my phone (pulled out fast) that I think are identifiable are on flickr. Rusty crest, clear stripes on face, white chin – size of a very small California Towhee.
Fall migration, I assume.
