Saturday afternoon north of Mount Misery another quiet location in fact was hosting a considerable number of eastern towhees. As I pushed on I was not more than ten yards from a towhee at any time. At least thirty were heard and more than ten males were seen. Pine warblers and a couple downy woodpeckers moved through the trees while some robins were distant callers.
Earlier in the after noon a mixed flock was located in a dead trunk bog, consisting of eastern bluebirds, grackles, and red-winged blackbirds about six each all males. Some phoebes, pine warblers, blue-gray gnatcatchers, and a Louisiana waterthrush were leading away from the bog.
