OH BOY! Look who came to visit me this morning at my house! It’s an Eastern Towhee. The first one I spotted this year. Welcome Mr. Towhee! I first noticed him in my pine tree. At first I thought it was a sparrow, but then noticed his long tail flick several times. Humm…that’s no sparrow. When I got closer to the window I was pleasantly surprised to see this little fellow drop down beneath the tree to scrape the mulch in search of insects or seeds. He was by himself, did not make any calls, and quickly flew away.
What a wonderful Saturday morning surprise!
d=date, t=time, c=weather conditions, and a=area of subject. One important note, when keeping a sketch book or journal make sure you note what day of the week it is next to the date. In 10 years when you look back at your memories you will have no idea what day it was by only looking at the date. It helps.
