Being a bird photographer, I’m always mesmerized by the creativity of mother nature. The type of decoration she gives our feathered friends is so much fun.
While watching my fox sparrow flock, there was another flock of special birds to me. The Eastern Towhee. Previously known as the Rufous Sided Towhee along with the spotted towhee, they now have their own name.
It’s not often that I see one, and when I do, they are usually scurrying under the brush. Liking to scratch the ground, they’re known for their call “Drink Your Teeeaa!”
Even the girls are beautiful in their subdued colors.
Eastern Towhees are large “New World” sparrows, found in northern America. I think they are adorable, and should perhaps have a tea party with them.
