The colorful fellow above looks similar to a robin, but is a spotted towhee. I had to really work for these shots of him, because towhees spend a lot of their time in the underbrush digging up grubs and other insects. He calls attention to himself by kicking up leaves. But since he stays under the darkness of the salt cedar bushes, I had to wait quite awhile to get a clear shot of him in a good light.
Mr. Robin seems to be a bit indignant of my camera pointed right at him. Or perhaps he was trying to see if I had any spare grubs.
