An unusual sighting.

An unusual bird presented itself at our birdfeeder today - one we've never seen before.  Randy saw him first and I ran to get my camera, even though I was SURE he'd be gone by the time I reached the front picture window. But he stayed!  And he hopped all around the front yard looking for seed and who-knows-what while my camera snapped away.  Of course we got our bird book out and discovered that he's an Eastern Towhee, a bird species that is heard more often than seen.  So much fun!
