10 thoughts on “Backyard Birds: California Towhee

  1. The California Towhee looks distinctly different than those we have here in Arizona. Ours have a little black mask around the eyes. My favorites though. Love their distinctive call. What a wonderful photo!!

  2. I’ve noticed a lot of increased wildlife activity in my neighborhood too: birds, squirrels, turkeys…it reminds me of those “getting ready for winter” children’s books :-)

    • Absolutely! The squirrels especially! I keep finding “hidden” acorns “planted” throughout our backyard (especially in the flower pots). It’s also been fascinating to watch the various animals (deer, coyotes, steller’s jays, turkeys) eating the acorns and how they get them out of the oak trees.
