This morning I saw the female hopping along my deck railing. I’ve only ever seen the male. This afternoon my neighbor called me over as she’d dicovered a nest in one of her planter boxes of long gone daffodils. I didn’t know the Towhee was a ground nester. Cool!
Check out the Cornell Lab of Ornithology site – allaboutbirds.org – to learn more. There are even recordings of the Towhee’s song.
