2021-04 Spotted Towhee Hatchlings

  •  
  •          
Just by chance I came across a Spotted Towhee's nest in the tall grass here on Pender Island. It was filled with four beautiful eggs and was very well hidden. These ground nests sure incur a lot of risk given the abundance of predators.
I hope to create a series of daily photos until they fledge, which should happen 10-12 days from hatching.
