Superb photo, with drops of water just hanging on, feathers so clear. Print and frame, hugs, Jean.

Beautiful towhee. We see the red eyes only during winter, as our local ones have golden or whitish eyes.

Karen said...

Beautiful shots.

Aren't they wonderful! OUr western towhees (in Oregon) were frequent yard visitors..and we even see them occasionally in the RV Park where we stay now when we're there. They have those distinctive markings -- and remarkable red eyes -- in fact I can't think of how they are different from yours. I need to look at pictures of both together to see...I would have IDd yours right away from the eyes alone.

He is a beauty!

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm thinking you must live in a wooded area to attract so many birds to your feeder. I'm impressed with the variety!

Judy said...

What colors! Even an expert human designer might come up short.

Fantastic photos and a happy coincidence because I got my first sighting of an Eastern Towee yesterday. I didn't get a photo though and so happy to see yours. Now I can show hubby what I was talking about, thank you :)
