Canyon Towhee (Pipilo fuscus)

I don’t mind saying so, but once in awhile I come up with some mighty cute pictures.  I’d like to share this one of a Canyon Towhee, that I photographed several weeks ago.

The Canyon Towhee looks somewhat drab at times, but I love the muted grays and browns.  This species is a ground dweller, hangs out in dense brush but feeds on the ground nearby.  They are similar to the California Towhee, and until recently, they were considered a single species, Brown Towhee.  Click on image to see an enlargement.  Enjoy.
