Eastern Towhee – 5/3/24

Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Date: 5/3/24

Observation Time: 10:30 a.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary

Common Name: Eastern Towhee (male & female)

Scientific Name: Pipilo erythrophthalmus

Comments: Towhees are common birds in Sharon, especially along edges between woods and open fields, but they are heard more than seen. The male’s song sounds like he’s singing, “Drink your tea.” I heard this male and female scratching together among dead leaves on the ground, presumably looking for insects to eat.
