Nature Through My Lens

Spotted Towhee


A Spotted Towhee.  For the most part these birds are very shy.  They generally are on the ground and keep under cover.  This one has been with us since fledging.  It’s finally got it’s adult feathers and is very handsome.  It has been around long enough that it will go on the feeders.  Here it’s on a tray with Niger seed.  This seems to be a favourite, for this guy anyway!
