Male Eastern Towhee

An Eastern Towhee couple have been among the frequent visitors to our back yard this summer.  I had a great opportunity to take a few shots of the male the other day when the weather was clear and skies a little overcast.  His striking orange eyes nearly match his orange "vest"...

Hope you have a wonderful Friday!


  1. Hello, cute shots of the Towhee. They are pretty birds. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. He is a beauty. Have a great weekend Susan.

  3. Came here from a Google search. I love the Towhees. We have a family or two of them living nearby, have seen them raising the juveniles. They make a LOT of noise. But are very beautiful and fun to watch. It's my favorite bird, as I've only recently gotten into birdwatching. Maybe it's just me trying to look at them up close, but the ones we have here in this area of NC have black eyes, or dark red. Great photos, thanks
