Nature Through My Lens



A immature Spotted Towhee (Pipilo maculatus) takens advantage of a saucer full of Niger seed in our garden. We have been watching this bird grow up all summer. It is finally beginning to look like a Towhee!

    • Ruth, thank you! We usually have one or two in the yard. Haven’t seen any adults lately. Just this guy! I didn’t think it was going to survive when it was younger, but it seems to have made out alright!
