Eastern Towhee

Why was the math textbook so sad?

He had a lot of problems!

Interesting Fact: The Eastern Towhee and the very similar Spotted Towhee of western North America used to be considered the same species, the Rufous-sided Towhee. The two forms still occur together in the Great Plains, where they sometimes interbreed. This is a common evolutionary pattern in North American birds ā€“ a holdover from when the great ice sheets split the continent down the middle, isolating birds into eastern and western populations that eventually became new species.

    • I am really glad to see that my post did that for you. I appreciate you stopping and checking out my work. Happy Blogging! šŸ™‚

  1. You are a hoot with your silly jokes but I loved the info about the Towhee. I haven’t seen one yet but even our local birds are hiding in 100 degrees TX heat… Pray for me as I go to an outlet mall today (that means it is OUTSIDE). If I never blog again, the heat got me! šŸ™‚
