A Spotted Towhee

I had a chat with this young fellow the other day and he let me take photos while we talked. I’ve been trying to get decent pictures of his parents for quite sometime but haven’t been able to get close enough as they’re awfully wary. Thankfully this one decided, for reasons still unknown, that I was harmless. He said he might bring the family around one day to meet me. That would be nice.

  • This is an amazing shot of a young Towhee. You’ve got excellent control of the depth of field so that the bird is totally in crisp focus while the main body of the cedar behind is softly out of focus, highlighting the subject. Well done, Ant!

  • Hello,

    May I have permission to use your photo of a Spotted Towhee for my bed and breakfast blog? The url is http://oakhavenbedandbreakfast.com. I would like to post a blog about spotting a Spotted Towhee this week at my place, but do not have a photo of the bird. Yours is a great shot, and is of the size I need (at least 950 pixels wide).

    I would be happy to give you credit and post a link to your blog if you would like. If you would like me to do this, can you send me the actual url of your blog?

    Thank you,
    Connie Nicholson
