Although they are common in Massachusetts, I only encountered Towhees today for the first time. This pair foraged under a feeder. I did not hear their signature calls, unfortunately, which sound like either “Tow-hee!” or “Drink your tea!”. They have an entertaining habit of hopping backwards on both feet, in order to rake up leaf litter.

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United States--a wonderful area for nature, art and culture. Using a compact camera, I celebrate daily life found here in a variety of local landscapes throughout the changing seasons.
