Eastern Towhee

Spring Migration Season has barely started and I feel like I am way behind in posting. I will really try to catch up during the rest of this week.

I don't usually see the Eastern Towhee up in a tree. I usually see them scratching around on the ground. I realized, today, that I had not heard their song. Until this afternoon. It was the song that made me go looking for the bird. They have a loud song - I heard it across the park - that is more a chirp with a nice tone. I guess this one was alerting all the other birds to the pretty setting that is Grant Park. Either that, or he was intentionally distracting me from trying to find that Eastern Meadowlark I had seen earlier. ;)
