Eastern Towhee

May 10, 2021

The Eastern Towhee is an annual visitor best described as uncommon, certainly not rare. This example was a male in its finest regalia. I see one or two every year but they are usually juveniles or females.

I will update these photos with better copies in a day or two after I learn the new Adobe format  probably when it rains which is a reliable event in Nova Scotia

The Eastern Towhee and Spotted Towhee (the western variant) were once classified as the same species, the Rufous-sided Towhee.
