On Monday I found a Green-tailed Towhee in east Vancouver, WA. It was moving around between blackberry and hawthorn bushes roughly .1 miles west of the intersection of NE 147th Ave and NE 59th St. (Two blocks south of Fourth Plain). Other birders were able to see it as well that morning, but in the afternoon could not be relocated.
This morning I was surprised to find the towhee was still there. It was using the same bushes as Monday, sometimes close to the sidewalk, other times farther back in blackberries. It was spending most of its time in a mixed flock of sparrows (mostly Golden-crowned).
