The Eastern Towhee is quite secretive and usually stays hidden in vegetation. They are most often by themselves and forage on the ground by scratching vigorously in leaf litter for seeds and insects.
I will identify it at the end of the post.
The Warbling Vireo is a bird of village shade trees or by rural roadsides. It is a small vireo with no wing bars and the pale line over the eye is not bordered above and below with dark lines as in the Red-eyed and Philadelphia Vireos.
This one was warbling loudly at Col Sam Smith Park:
I was surprised while standing on my front porch early this morning to see a Red Fox casually moving about.
This one is a little confusing because the light makes it look quite brown. Common Grackles usually look much darker. The white eye ring is a good identification mark.
Without your showers, I breed no flowers,
Each field a barren waste appears;
If you don’t weep, my blossoms sleep,
They take such pleasures in your tears. – Philip Freneau (1752–1832)
