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

  25. 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.

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