Eastern Towhee Pictures

When I was home a few weekends ago I got these pictures of an Eastern Towhee. Actually, a lifer for me I believe! My mom yelled to me from the kitchen and said "there's a bird out back that's black on top and brown on underneath and my first instinct was to say that it's just a robin, but she assured me that it wasn't. So I went to look and it was a towhee!

Congrats on the lifer, and nice pics. I have yet to get a decent photo of them yet myself

@Dan- thanks! My mom was the first to spot it ("there's some weird-looking black bird at the back feeder"), but at least I ID-ed it right away :)
