Wow – beautiful shots Linda – great close-ups of this beautiful bird.
Wonderful captures, Linda! This Towhee is SO gorgeous!!
Thanks Barbara and Cindy. I know they’re fairly common birds, but they’re soooo pretty!!
Great close-ups, Linda! I love the beautiful markings. Cool red eyes!
Nice to have all the different views – great bird!
Thanks! I was fortunate that it stayed around long enough for multiple shots. They usually hide in the underbrush.
The Spotted Towhee. One of my personal favorites. At our blind at San Angelo State Park, he hides in the shrubs, dashes out to grab a sunflower seed, then runs back into cover before coming out for another tidbit.
I was fortunate to see this one sort of in the open at B de A. I have 4 or 5 of them at my house right now, but they spend most of their time in the shrubs. such handsome birds!
