    The California Towhee looks distinctly different than those we have here in Arizona. Ours have a little black mask around the eyes. My favorites though. Love their distinctive call. What a wonderful photo!!

      Love towhees! I’d love to see the ones in your area with a little black mask. 🙂

    I’ve noticed a lot of increased wildlife activity in my neighborhood too: birds, squirrels, turkeys…it reminds me of those “getting ready for winter” children’s books 🙂

      Absolutely! The squirrels especially! I keep finding “hidden” acorns “planted” throughout our backyard (especially in the flower pots). It’s also been fascinating to watch the various animals (deer, coyotes, steller’s jays, turkeys) eating the acorns and how they get them out of the oak trees.

        I find peanuts in my yard that the jays hide; one of the neighbors must leave them out.

          We find all kinds of weird stuff in our yard… the strangest being fruit of different kinds (there aren’t fruit trees anywhere near us). I’ve also found cheese slices…

      Our computer is set up near the window, so we can watch the birds (and other wildlife) while we work. Whenever I need to think a bit, I space out and watch the birds. It’s so relaxing!!

        Why have I not thought of that??? This weekend I will spend some time re-arranging my work area so I can see my bird visitors too.
