Observation details

Bird continues at this location, elevation 5,160 ft in the Blue Ridge near Mt Mitchell. Spent all morning, as usual, foraging in the shrubs and herbaceous layer along both sides of the road. Stayed on or near the ground except for a couple of minutes that it rested on the branch of a small deciduous tree. Popped up occasionally higher up on a plant where it could be well seen by everyone there, but then would drop back down and could only tell its presence by watching the plants moving. Only very rarely moves into a more forested area and even then stays at the edge. A first year bird appeared in this same location last year for a brief time.
