The spotted towhee is a permanent resident to our area. According to Cornell Ornithology Lab, “Spotted Towhees are likely to visit – or perhaps live in – your yard if you’ve got bushy, shrubby, or overgrown borders. If your feeders are near a vegetated edge, towhees may venture out to eat fallen seed”(https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Spotted_Towhee/overview#) .
