Atowhee, you will like this one: California Towhee Not the best song or plumage, but I really enjoy them... their territory is about 5 acres so you will only see 2 or less in a single location (maybe more if you are standing on the border of 2 territories or when they have young). I have a pair in my yard now and they bred last year. The two of them are almost always together foraging in our yard.
