What bird is this?

We saw it while hiking the Harding Truck Trail in the Santa Ana Mountains.


Spotted Towhee, very common but generally hidden in brush.

Then shouldn't it be the Rarely Spotted Towhee?  Smile

You pose a rather interesting question Mr. Greg. Are the Towhees always spotted when they're spotted? Perhaps their coloration is sex, season or age affected. Thus they may not be spotted when spotted.
