Sitting in a quiet garden on a sunny September afternoon, I watched the birds harvesting fall goodies; newly-matured seeds, red mountain-ash berries, probably some incautious spiders. Sparrows turned over leaf litter under the shrubbery, a flock of juncos dashed from pear tree to dying dahlias to the tall sunflowers, hummingbirds zipped about overhead. And this shy towhee kept close to the cover of the pyracantha on the far side of the lawn, eating orange berries that matched his flank feathers, dropping down at times to freshen up in a shallow bath.
|Towhee eating pyracantha berries.|
|"No fair! He's been hogging the bath for hours!"|
- El towhee, comiendo bayas de Pyracantha.
- Meditando en su baño.
- Dice — ¡Qué falta de educación! ¡Hace horas que monopoliza el baño!
