Artist's Description

This beautiful Eastern Towhee comes to visit me every winter. During the worst of our blizzards I find him cuddled up in a snow drift, tucked safely away in a comfy cavern carved from the harshest of the wind’s blasts. He knows that no matter the weather, there will always be his favorite black oiler sunflower seeds in the feeders and spread on the snow. As the inches of the white stuff build up, so do my tossings of seeds … until Mother Nature and I are almost in a battle to see who can make the biggest mess.

According to Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s “All About Birds” web page, my <a href="http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Eastern_Towh...">Towhee</a> is only supposed to be in my area during summer. But as this picture shows, dead of winter is when he visits. I guess he knows that, although I hate to cook, I know how to treat my guests and can toss a mean handful of seeds when I want to!!

Learn more about him, and hear hs song, here:

Original photographic image taken with the Nikon D7000 and the 150-500mm OS Sigma lens. Treated to much editing in Camera Raw, Nikon’s Capture NX2, Photoshop CS5 and CS6, and Corel Painter 11. My thanks to 2 Lil’ Owls for the texture overlays.
