Fine Feathered Friends – April 20th

Today saw the return of a rare visitor!

It’s the spotted towhee!

It’s rather distinctive, with the white breast, black head, sides that look like a robin, and the black and white spots on the back and wings.

I’ve seen it maybe four or five times in the last four years, and this is only the second time that I’ve ever seen it out on the lawn where I could get a lood look at it, and some decent pictures.

Normally it hides off in the bushes, or at most comes out along the base of the fence and rumages in the dirt beneath the bushes.

It was out sharing the bird seed with the mourning doves.

I hope it sticks around, it’s a beautiful bird!
