Seen today at 10:40am at the same location where it was reported by Brendan and Paul Galvin yesterday (31.5569,-111.0470). This spot is 0.5mi south of the gate to the DeAnza trail off Santa Gertrudis Lane. It was in the dense brush just east of the "center trail" that runs between and parallels the River and the DeAnza Trail. As Brendan pointed out, this bird is very skulky. It was foraging with 2 Abert's Towhees. It often foraged beneath the leaf cover, completely hidden, but would stick its head up once in a while. Eventually, it came out in plain view and one could see its white supercilium, streaked cheek and barred undertail coverts. After I found the bird I called Joy and Jon Duerr. When they arrived I hadn't seen the bird for about 10min but Joy located it a short distance to the south and many folks were able to see it.
