What a beautiful spring weekend we had! I enjoyed some hiking and birding at Pfeiffer Nature Center and got a nice look at this beautiful male Eastern Towhee. These birds are normally scurrying about deep in the brush and I rarely get more than a fleeting glimpse of them. This fellow, however, was most accommodating, staying in plain view for several minutes and repeatedly giving a very clear ‘towhee’ call.
He may have tired of me watching him as evidenced in the next picture.
