Male Eastern Towhee, Louisville, Kentucky 11/29/2020

These birds are often found on the ground scratching in the leaves to uncover bugs to eat. Sometimes they fly to a branch 6-10 feet off the ground to sing.

@eric it's odd to see a towhee that's not spotted =D

Are they screamy-birders, too, like the spotted Towhee? (except when they're territory advertising, when they can actually "sing")

@TheRealPomax I just listened to the Spotted Towhee's song, and it's kinda like a faster version of the second half of the Eastern Towhee's song. allaboutbirds.org/guide/Easter

@eric Yeah that's *nothing* like what the Spotted Towhees here sound like. I should set up a recording session for them. They are very vocal, and VERY YELLY =D

@eric
Hello from My. Washington. I really like this one.

@louisseidel6 Hey, nice to meet you! I see you've posted photos from the parklands. I go there a lot. I mostly photograph birds.

@eric
Nice to meet you too! I'm there pretty frequently since it's nearby. Most things I post here are from my phone but I also use an old Minolta. Those never get posted...
