Eastern Towhee

Female Eastern Towhee
 
Eastern Towhee's spend most of their time scratching in brushy areas.  Only occasionally do they fly up to a perch and when they do they seldom linger for more than a moment.

Checking out the lens
 
And getting back to the work at hand; scratching out a living
 
With the summer foliage gone and food becoming scarce the wintering birds are much easier to photograph than are birds at any other time of the year.
