Eastern Towhee

At work this morning, I got to watch a female Eastern Towhee hopping and scratching around under my feeders for several minutes. I was surprised at how often she flicked her white outer tail feathers--once every five seconds or so. You don't always get to watch towhees out in the open for so long, since they normally forage in leaves on the ground under thick brush.

Still a little early for my Towhees to return! But great to have the chance to see this great bird!
