Above are three views of a male Eastern Towhee.


I photographed this Eastern Towhee because it was much different looking than the others.
You can see by the sun high lighting the bill and the black feathers on the head its head is not in the shade.
I really don't know why its color is so different. It was in with a bunch of normal looking male Towhees.


Photograpged in Greensboro, N. C.

Above our four views of a female Eastern Towhee.
