in my feeder.

by Ruth
(Baltimore, Ohio, USA)

I have no picture, but was a beautiful bird in my feeder in central Ohio. Was a medium sized bird. The color on the head, back, wings and tail was a mousey brown. The breast was white with orange on both sides (like a vest). There were white and black stripes on the tail. I didn't notice any on the wings, but he/she didn't stay long. I think it was migratory, as I have never seen one like this before.

Yes, I was thinking an Eastern Towhee also

That sounds like an Eastern Towee. They are so pretty and fun to watch. Check out the Audubon site for a photo and let meknow if that is what you have.

Happy birding.
