Featured Critter – Canyon Towhee

Canyon towhees are large brown sparrows with a reddish cap. They have long tails and chunky bodies. Like other towhees, these birds can most often be seen hoping around and scratching in the dirt looking for food. They like to eat insects caught in a car grill and will hide under the car when disturbed.
