Haven't gotten to counting the total number of species yet, it was 6 full
days of birding, 2 days of sightseeing and 1 day of being sick. I was so
blessed that local birders were able to find me all of these birds. If I
had to go out on my own my list would have been tiny. Your towhee's do not
sound anything like the one I am listening to at this moment.
Could you possibly list the life birds you picked up on the trip?
Stellar Jay, Scrub Jay, Black-chinned Hummer, Calif. Quail, Lesser
Goldfinch, Bewick's Wren, Rock Wren, Spotted Towhee, Green-tail Towhee, Am.
Dipper, Vaux Swift, Bullock's Oriole, Black-headed Grosbeak, Pygmy Nuthatch,
Mtn Chickadee, Western Blue Bird, Mtn Blue Bird, Gray Flycatcher, Bushtilt,
Cinnamon Teal, Wilson's Phalarope, W Meadowlark, W Kingbird, Says Phoebe,
Swainson's Hawk, Sage Thrasher, Brewers Sparrow, Clark's Grebe, Black Terns,

Dark-eyed Junco (Oregon) and the Northern flicker (Red-shafted), I know they
