Spotted Towhee

This Spotted Towhee is just recently out of the nest. The plumage and dark eyes are confusing. The bird does have large, white tail spots which help with identification—along with upset parent towhees in the nearby bushes. Interestingly, when a baby bird squawks, birds of many species are often attracted. Spotted Towhees are among the most common birds at our backyard feeders. Erika and I took this photograph on 17 June 2020.
