A new visitor to the bird feeder

I saw a new bird at the feeder today.

At first I thought it was a black-headed grosbeak, but not with those red eyes (and white chest).

The beak was also too dark.

It proved to be a rufous-sided towhee, a bird I hadn't seen around here before. We used to get them all the time when we lived in Oregon, but that was over 20 years ago.

Welcome, visitor!

  1. We have them here in Georgia. Their song sounds like "Drink your teeeea!"
