Still another musician who delights to take liberties with his score is the towhee bunting, or chewink.
Two eggs of the cowbird and two or three of the towhee in a nest are common.
So let us call the towhee a finch, and say no more about it.
Chewink: towhee, or ground-robin; to be distinguished by his loud call of “chewink” and his vigorous scratching among the leaves.
Chewink, or towhee (Pipilo erythrophthalmus), the "Hermit's" story, 93.
The Chewink, or towhee, called Nahl-tse, was instrumental in procuring the first fire.
It is a common experience to find eggs of the parasitic cowbird in nests of towhee.
Other birds that frequently use the crab-apple tree as a nest site include the field sparrow, towhee and indigo bunting.
Whence did the towhee derive his equanimity, and the brown thrush his saturnine temper?
There is not the remotest suggestion of the towhee minstrelsy in his prolonged and well-articulated melody.
