Spotted Towhee in the bath

The first time I saw a spotted towhee was last summer.

I had never seen one before, and first thought it was an American robin, because the coloring is so similar.

But the robin has a white circle around its eyes and doesn't have the white speckles.

After doing some research on the Audubon site, I learned that it was a spotted towhee.

This winter the towhee has been an occasional visitor and seems to enjoy the bird bath.

Such a welcome sight!
