This morning I was watching the goldfinches and white-throated sparrows in the shrubbery behind the apartment in which my wife and I live in Galax, VA (Carroll County half), when a larger bird that was olive on top, gray on the breast, with a bright rufous crown and a white throat appeared. I checked both the NG and Rising's _Sparrows of the United States and Canada_: green-tailed towhee. It's a western bird and an obvious stray, but worth reporting.
