    Dan, There is no CBRC endorsed record of an Eastern Towhee for California - closest occurrence appears to be a record for southeast Arizona. Guy McCaskie 954

      This just appeared today - could this be a first state record?

      (by the way, Eaton Canyon = Eaton Cyn. Nature Center in Pasadena, Los Angeles Co.)

      There was a female Eastern Towhee along the east side of the trail
      near the SW corner of the nature center building this morning about 9
      AM. I first noticed it because it was kick-scratching very vigorously
      in leaf litter, more so than it seems to me that either species of our
      local towhees usually does. Also head and wings were not the duller
      gray of a Spotted Towhee female, but a definite brown. It had no spots
      on the back and no wing bars. The eye appeared brown. I did not notice
      whether or not there was a white patch at the base of the primaries
      simply because I didn't look for it. I'm going to try again tomorrow.
