This morning we added the Dec. 31 Towhee observation to ebird.  This makes
a total of 11 days in December that we've reported the bird being seen.

The Eastern Towhee has been seen in our back yard eating millet we spread
on the ground most days since we first noticed it.  It was definitely there
on Dec. 31.  Not today, though.  I'll watch for it tomorrow.  Marsha Kardon
