hey so cool I just saw one two days ago. Are they coming through here?

Hi, Melissa! I believe the Towhees hang around all year, unless it gets really really cold. Sort of like Robins. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

Oh, and like Robins, Towhees usually like to feed on the ground, which is why I say they're an "uncommon" bird at the feeder, which is up on our back porch, pretty high off the ground.
