Just Tweeting Around Town!

American Redstart

F/6.3, 1/100, ISO 1600.

Eastern Towhee 
Day 113 / 365

What do you give a sick bird?

Interesting Fact: Eastern Towhees tend to be pretty solitary, and they use a number of threat displays to tell other towhees theyโ€™re not welcome. You may see contentious males lift, spread, or droop one or both wings, fan their tails, or flick their tails to show off the white spots at the corners. Studies have shown that male towhees tend to defend territories many times larger than needed simply to provide food.  ( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Eastern_Towhee/lifehistory


  1. Hello ~ wanted to let you know I really enjoy your blog. .. and for today’s pic I think you may have found yourself an Eastern Towhee. We have Spotted Towhee’s everywhere and I enjoy watching them hanging on the ground kicking up dirt and leaves.

    • Omg. Thank you very much, I feel so embarrassed that I put the wrong name on this bird. I am still fairly new in identifying birds, I see something new, I take a photo and look online for what it is. American Redstart look very similar. Thank you so much again for correcting me, I truly appreciate. I already corrected my mistake. ๐Ÿ™‚
