Eastern Towhee

Another shot from Saturday: an eastern towhee (Pipilo erythrophthalmus). From the Halibut Point State Park I drove north to the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. Most of its beaches were closed because of breeding piping plovers and least terns, but one of the marsh areas and some dunes were accessible via walkways and offered nice views of the local wildlife. Aside from tons of people with spotting scopes on tripods, I saw wild turkeys, red-winged blackbirds, a couple of plovers, warblers, and an ibis. I can really recommend a visit if you’re into birds.
