Ol’ Wally remembers when Towhees were called Rufous-sided Towhees–see the reddish side feathers–but you humans have shortened that to Eastern Towhee.
We see the Towhees when we’re digging in the underbrush looking for acorns we hid. They like thickets and and though the males are most strikingly marked, they’re good at hiding in dense foliage.
Females like this one are particularly hard to see with their more brownish coloring. That makes hiding while hatching eggs easy, though doesn’t explain why they have red eyes.
