Little Towhee

The arctic blast that has frozen Georgia has the birds out looking for food.  Personally, I would be huddled in that nest shivering off a few pounds until the weather warmed up.  But, there they are, scratching the ground, eating the seeds we put out and ice skating on the frozen bird bath.  The one that caught my eye most was the toohee.  The white on its underside was brilliant against the black of his hooded head.  Wish I had nature’s palette.

Stay warm.

    The rufous sided towhees are among my favorites. You are right about the colors – they are beautiful.

    He looks very chipper for a cold little bird.
