Eastern Towhee migrant

And here's another recent migrant, an Eastern Towhee, male, hanging out on our shrub penisula, and area behind the bird feeder that we stock with berry-producing shrubs. This is a species whose populations is declining, so it's nice to see him show up and visit our restaurant to refuel for his migration.
It's always exciting and rewarding for us to know that our efforts at providing good bird habitat pay off and that we provide for the needs of both breeding and migrant birds.

Great shot.

We saw our first Towhee of the season a few days ago. A few seem to stay around here during winter.
