A Spotted Towhee
Here’s a Spotted Towhee in our backyard. It was at one of our Suet feeders. This is strange because they usually eat off the ground. I wondered why, until I downloaded the imaged and realized that it has a deformed bill. I suppose it is easier for it to eat. Hope it sticks around because we always have suet around!
A Rock Dove (Feral Pigeon) sitting on the train tracks. Surprisingly enough this seems to be a popular perch for Pigeons, Crows, and Gulls. I have not idea why. Perhaps the tracks are warmer than the rocks.
