December 5 - Spotted Towhee

This morning my friend Rob took me to Palmyra Cove Park, which is along the Delaware River near the town of Cinnaminson.
Upon arriving we ran into another friend Rick who was already spying the bird. We got quick looks at it and then it disappeared. It would reappear every 20-30 minutes, so we got to see it several times over the next 2 hours or so.

The rain then changed to snowflakes, so we headed home with another New Jersey rarity (I believe this is just the 5th record ever) on our life lists.
Here is the Range Map:
