Rufous-Sided Towhee


I was surprised to see this fellow and his somewhat duller wife on the back porch this morning. They were picking around in the thistle seeds the goldfinches had dumped.

Wow. Is that your photo?

Funny. We've always had towees singing at the edge of the woods. But this year is the first time I've seen them under the feeder, too.

Sadly, no--he wouldn't stop flitting back and forth long enough to stand still for a photo. So I grabbed one off Google Images to commemorate him (and remind me of how he looked).
