This is an Eastern Towhee as seen at Singleton Lake. It has made the forests and meadows home along with a couple of hundred other species of birds - that we know about anyway. We will keep the land unchanged so that they will want to continue to live here. Our parents taught us to respect and protect nature. We have tried to pass that on to the next generation and the one after that. "The egg doesn't fall very far from the tree..." and that can be a good thing. My Daughter Janice was looking for the expression that the nut doesn't fall very far from the tree but I like this version much better.
I came upon this photo of a male Eastern Towhee taken during the same bioblitz that revealed the Indigo Bunting. I thought that it would make a nice mate to #1188 "Indigo". This boldly patterned sparrow is perhaps best known for its call that is also the source of its English name (towhee) and early vernacular names (chewink, joree).
