Awesome! I had to work the entire time, getting home after dark every day, so I wasn't able to count.


Cop Car was so kind as to point out gently (and in a private email) that those are robins, not towhees. Yep, that is true, and my excitement over having towhees was unwarranted. Oh well, next year maybe.


Ruth - that is too bad. I am lucky that I don't have to work weekends, or at least when I do I can work from home as long as I remember to bring my work computer home.

Bogie--Seeing robins where you did when you did is not to be sneezed at! Robins are just towhees in disguise - same color palette. If anyone wishes to compare a photo of an E towhee to the robins that you show, they may go to Cornell Lab's All About Birds.

The two species are certainly similar enough in looks to make my poor synapses grab the wrong name! (I owed you a favor. You may recall that the "female house finch" photo that I posted some time ago was actually, as you were kind enough to educate me concerning, a female rose-breasted grosbeak - which had not even occurred to me!)
