17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Totally Towhee

An Eastern Towhee visits me every time I head into the woods across the street from my home. All I have to do is make the "cha-weet" call and she makes her way towards me, echoing back the entire time. Sometimes I'll be sitting at my house and hear her calling, so I head up and "chat" with my buddy for awhile. The first time she made an appearance was on June 23, 2019 when I was sitting in the woods...10 years to the day when my only brother Paul passed away.
