Favorite photo of a beautiful bird: a Green-tailed Towhee takes flight, photographed on the road to Arrastre Creek in the San Bernardino National Forest by Sandy Remley [on Flickr].
I've seen this smallest towhee at Bluff Lake and Metcalf Meadows near the cabin. The more I see [and hear] them, the more I like these great-looking little birds. Check out the one-wing-at-a-time territorial display in this most excellent Flickr video.
