My first towhee


What’s under the back deck stairs? A new bird!


It’s a female Eastern Towhee. Pretty!


Hard to get a good shot.


A strikingly marked, oversized sparrow of the East, feathered in bold black and warm reddish-browns – if you can get a clear look at it. Eastern Towhees are birds of the undergrowth, where their rummaging makes far more noise than you would expect for their size. Their chewink calls let you know how common they are, but many of your sightings end up mere glimpses through tangles of little stems.

So true!
