Jots about the bird…
- It’s an Eastern Towhee.
- I identified it at All About Birds using the “similar species” feature.
- I thought it was a small robin when I first saw it.
- It spends lots of time noisily foraging in thicket.
- Cow birds often lay eggs in towhee nests; Towhees have trouble distinguishing there own eggs and will then raise the young Cow birds!
