Can anyone ID this bird call? PNW, Vancouver Island BC. It has a black head and back, red/brown wing area, grey/white chest. Looks a bit like a Towhee, but certainly doesn’t sound like one.
This bird has been waking me up at 5:45 for a couple months, not such a bad thing, but when it follows me around the yard making this annoying yelp at me for an hour plus, daily, like clock-work. O_O
