I first saw the bird on the south side of Turtle Bay between the south end of the bridge and the inlet where a small arm of the lake extends to the southwest. It was sitting in a tree that extends out over the water just east of the inlet. It flushed to another tree just a few feet to the east and preened while I studied for about five minutes at a range of about 15m.
Description: Robin-sized bird, broad rusty line through the eye. Dark gray head, wings, and back. Rusty buff chin and throat separated from rusty buff chest by a dark horizontal bar. Buffy spots on folded wing. Belly mottled with buffy on white.
