3/6, Stratford yard/woods @ (6:35a)-
(3) Eastern Towhees scratching around the wood edges behind my dumpsters in the condos.
I pulled in after getting smokes and brew, and heard the complete Towhee song! For the lasdt week or so (posted about it a whlie ago) I've been hearing the 'EAST-ern' .... or 'DRINK-your' parts, but until this morning I didn't get the whole phrase... 'EAST-ern, tow-HEEHEEEEEEEE'.... or 'DRINK-your-TEEEAAAA'.
Two of the Towhees were male, one female. I wonder if its the breeding pair, or one of them or offspring, I watched last summer. Do they always pick such impossible and impassible sections of woods?? These did last year. It was in a crotch of a tree, filled with hangy moss and leaves and sticks, inside a thorn bush, inside a thicket, inside the woods. Great real-estate!
