Spotted Towhee

The spotted towhee is a bird I remember seeing in our backyard years ago, when it was known as a rufous-sided towhee, but only recently saw them again when we got our bird feeders. 

Even then, they stay on the ground and are skittish, making them difficult to photograph. 

I saw some last year in New Mexico and did a post on them.

Saturday I was at Big Morongo Canyon and got the best photos of a spotted towhee so far.

  1. i was SO excited to see one of these in our bird bath a few weeks ago, even though at the time I had no idea what it was. It was so distinctly different from any other bird we have been getting in the yard. What a beauty!
