Hi I grew up on the Canadian prairies, with similar bird to Montana, but when I moved to Vancouver island, we get birds like Seattle. This bird here is supper common, but there is nothing like it where I am from. Does anyone know this guy?

It took me 10 years to get a good picture of it. See attached.
Also to hear the trill call visit here because you can't post video here

It’s called Eastern Towhee now.

Edit: actually now I’ve read the original post more carefully, based on your location, it should be Spotted Towhee.

Welcome to the Forum, cme! Your bird is a Spotted Towhee, as others have said.
