Rufous-sided Towhee

I rarely saw a Rufous-sided Towhee when I was a kid, though it was one of my favorite birds. They seemed to only appear occasionally in the spring during migration and it was a treat to see one. Here in Oregon they are more common and I see them most anytime of year. There seems to be a tendency to now call them Spotted Towhees, but I can't get used to that. I should research why the change has occurred. I saw this one at the Mentor Graphics campus. I discovered that there is more to the ponds at Mentor than the two near the street. It's really quite a nice place. I wonder if they are hiring. :-)
