Green-tailed Towhee - spotted again

I was just talking on Friday about the Green-tailed Towhee, an uncommon visitor to my yard, and lo and behold, I saw one all day on Sunday eating the thistle seed off of the ground under the feeder. Isn't that weird how that happens. It's almost like I willed him to the yard!

He was more shy than the white-crowned sparrows who are still "wintering" here. I'm surprised they haven't already left for the summer. Of course, I'm surprised the Towhee is still here too!
