Abert's Towhee
Pipilo aberti


To learn more click here

Sort of a grayish brown bird. Has a pale bill. I think the black
through the eye looks a lot like Robins mask [ of Batman & Robin ].

Also on this page you will see an Abert's Towhee that has some Leucistic or white feathers.
Also a ground feeder under bushes and brush piles.

A ground feeding bird. Scratching through the under brush and leaves.
Very seldom comes out into the open except to feed on a man made feeder.
If you watch this bird closely you see it hope backwards scratch away the the surface
leafs and other surface things to get at what is under them.
Feeds mostly on spiders, lizards, insects, & grass seed.
