Hi birders,

The Green-tailed towhee continues on the Calero Creek Trail, where the
trail crosses the dry Santa Teresa creek. Seen from about 9:20-10:00 with
Gena & Jeff Zolotar. Hanging out with a flock of Golden-crowned sparrows
and juncos, sometimes on the trail and sometimes in the grassy field
opposite the orchard. At one point it gave a buzzy trill.

While looking at the towhee, Gena spotted an Empidonax flycatcher, at which
point we lost the towhee trying to follow this bird instead. It moved East
along the trail along Santa Teresa Creek and out of sight. She has nice
photos and may be able to chime in with more detail.

Happy Trails,
