This bird was singing from the top of a lone Jeffrey Pine at the edge of the Jones Valley meadow and originally identified as a Fox Sparrow. Later in the day, a Green-tailed Towhee was seen singing from the same place. Do both birds share the use of this same perch? Or did I mis-identify this bird? I did not look at it carefully enough through binoculars to be positive during this recording, although I did later in the same area and even the same tree if I recall correctly.
