23-JUN-2017 Vern Rogers (fotabug fotos)

Someone you can invite as guest to your home!

When I first saw this Spotted Towhee in the top of a tree at Delta Ponds, the sunlight was coming from behind it. I had to move around the tree to get better light on the subject. The tree was on the edge of a bank that dropped down to the pond. Since I didn't want to go down there unexpectedly I moved with caution. But I did get better lighting on the Towhee. Shot was made handheld.

Backyard Tips - "Spotted Towhees are likely to visit – or perhaps live in – your yard if you’ve got brushy, shrubby, or overgrown borders. If your feeders are near a vegetated edge, towhees may venture out to eat fallen seed. If you want to attract towhees to your feeders, consider sprinkling some seed on the ground, as this is where towhees prefer to feed."

What a delightful shot of this beauty, Vern. I always find them to be so very shy! Great job! I'm sure having 600mm helps! ;)
