The obvious difference as compared to an eastern towhee are the white makrings on the back. Easterns don't have the spots.
We went to see this bird on the weekend and it was cooperative, showing up about 10 minutes after we got to the feeders.
Thanks to George Finney, the property owner who has been welcoming birders and helping them see the bird.

Sandhills at sunset
There were reports of sandhill cranes, lots of ducks, tundra swans and a spotted towhee.
Just as we were done for the day the sandhills started flying back to the marsh.
More on the towhee another day.

Hey! This thing is empty.
The redbellied woodpecker seemed irritated that his favourite feeder was empty

Do you want to play?
Unfortunately there are a lot of sick racoons in the park this year. This one looked healthy but Crash is an indoor cat, so he won't be playing outside.

Can you see me now?
It would easily fit in your hand.
They migrate through our area each fall.

It's a question.
I thought I was uploading a different photo.
This is a question mark butterfly, look closely and you will see it.

I liked the way the light made the wings semi transparent.
