Yours truly

California Towhee

(Pipilo crissalis)

    These are uncommon in our neighborhood in Northern California, but the west side of California and Baja California are the only habitats for this rather plain bird (according to Sibley's Guide to Birds). They are much larger than the juncos, chickadees, and titmice that are the far more common visitors to our feeder and almost the size of robins.
