Eastern Towhee

Here’s the Eastern Towhee I was watching when those Fox Sparrows went walking by on that sparrowtastic Tuesday a couple of days ago. Did I mention the Eastern Towhee is a sparrow as well?  He was a little unsure of me at first, staying in the safety of some dense brush, but it amazes me how quickly the towhees warm up. It wasn’t thirty seconds later that he hopped out on a nice low hanging branch right in front of me and continued singing.
