This is a discussion on towhee checkin' me out within the Animals and Birds forums, part of the PHOTO GALLERIES category; caught this little towhee flitting around the brambles at the edge of my back yard this afternoon... he spotted me and seemed a bit non-plussed ...
AWESOME shot!!! You timed it perfectly!

Great shot! I love the detail and colors. This one is worthy of framing. You're right the rufous-sided towhee is a bit camera shy. I cant even get to the door before they take off. I will get a shot one of these days.

Awesome shot. You've gotta show this to Audubon and "Living Bird".
He's actually turned around to look at you- I didn't know they were that flexible.
