Spotted Towhee


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!

Waiting for the Train


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.
