Eastern towhee foraging, video

Eastern towhees like this splendid male spend most of their time in dense underbrush scratching at lead litter for a meal – often with both feet- all the time flashing their white tail feathers to distract any would-be predators. They can make enough noise to think someone – or something – much bigger is out there in the woods! They are most often seen in the open when the male comes out on a tree branch or phone wire to sing his glorious “Drink your tea” song which can be seen in the video below here.

Eastern Towhee singing the rarer and jazzier “Drink Drink Your Tea….” call. First time I have heard and recorded this version of the call (with a cell phone) – main thing is the audio. The deeper slower traditional “Drink Your Tea” Call is a staple of Backyard summers. The faster tempo “drink – drink your tea” call was from a bird in heavy brush in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
