[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Rufous-Sided Towhee is a bit smaller than a Robin at 7-8.5" and ranges from Southern Canada throughout the U.S. to the northern sectors of Central America. You can find this beautiful birds in gardens, forest edges, in shrubs, and especially in my own backyard. The Towhee is not shy and appears curious to whatever is new placed onto the edge of the deck where I place feed for the ground dwellers such as the Oregon Juncos and several wrens. Their orange eyes mimic the color beneath their wings...

Hi Steven,
great portrait of this colorful bird. Your pic has a strange aspect - don't know what you did with it - perhaps too much postprocessing (backlight correction?)
have a nice day

Hello Steve
Thanks for sharing this impressive looking Rufous-Sided Towhee. They sure are colourful birds. Nicely composed with a nice soft background. Have a good evening.
