Spotted Towhee

Spotted Towhees usually stay down in the shadows of forest undergrowth scratching for food under the fallen leaves. But when it's time to sing, it's time to be seen and heard. This one is at home in McMinnville's Airport Park.

one on my patio the other day kicked up SO much dirt looking for food that he made a small pile. You would have thought it was made by a small dog.

Had to stop my weeding when I realized that I was getting near a Towhee nest .I don't need much of an excuse to stop, but this seemed to be a good one.

A Towhee is a good reason to stop just about any other activity for at least a minute or two. Even if you can't see them, their songs and calls, or the sounds of fallen leaves being shuffled around as they search under them for edible things, let you know that there is life in the woods.
