So, there’s no celebration or champagne tonight. You know who doesn’t care? The birds out in the yard and the trees, that’s who.
The Cornell Merlin app identifies this mid-sized bird (the size of a robin, bigger than a wren, smaller than a jay or crow) as a California Towhee.
Right profile. Very cooperative, almost like it’s modeled and taken direction in the past…
Not funny? Sorry.
There are not a lot of distinctive markings or coloration, although there is some cinnamon brown coloring around the face and some gray stripes on the wings.
And they play well with others, in this case the rat bastard squirrel who keeps eating the bird seed.
