In CO, we had Rufous-sided Towhees and I only ever saw one, on the rail of a friend's deck, but I knew right away what he was. Now, this is the first Eastern one I have ever seen, never knew one to come to feeders, but this year has been a real challenge for the birds, first snow storms that wouldn't quit and now rain that is a daily thing, so the birds have flocked to suet, for strength and endurance, I guess. that is what he showed up for and he still does almost daily. Yesterday they all were here looking like drowned rats, especially the cardinals. Because of the weather, I am feeding the suet cakes as I know that when they don't need them anymore, they will get on to the business of living normally. I have never fed this late in the spring before.
