Once again acts and feeds like the other Towhees

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.


Now you know why it is called a Green-tailed Towhee.

In order to entice these birds out from the cover of the under brush
I threw some sunflower seeds on the ground out in the open.
