Eastern Towhee

Eastern Towhee, Laudholm Farms, Wells Maine

There seem to be a lot of Eastern Towhees this year. I see them on the Kennebunk Plains and at Laudholm Farms…and they are still very vocal. They are singing abbreviated songs now, which I think is typical of the nesting period. This gentleman hopped around in the lower branches off the boardwalk through the Maple Swamp at Laudholm and finally hopped up to pose on the tip of this dead birch twig. Ideal! Add the glint of sun in his eye and it is a very satisfying portrait. At least to me 🙂
