California Towhee

Three months ago I posted this shot of what I thought was a sparrow. Upon closer inspection and the use of more bird apps, I’m told this is a California towhee…on a rock. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology says the bird is “essentially a large sparrow” although it is a California towhee, adding that the towhee likes to nest in poison oak to which I say, have at it!
