Eastern Towhee Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: Eastern Towhees are quite a common species in parts of southeastern South Dakota. As you can tell from the photos below, Newton Hills State Park certainly has plenty of Eastern Towhees in spring, summer, and fall. Despite seeing them (and hearing them) all the time, and despite having many photos of the species, I really don't have much for "great" photos. The one here is the best, a bird from August 2009 in an eastern red cedar tree.
