The colorful Towhee bird that I shared about earlier, is still showing up at my sliding door almost every day. Actually, I am assuming it is the same Towhee, instead of many different ones, because I don’t know how to tell one from another, but whether it is one bird or several, I find the behavior amazing.
The little bird has stopped tapping on the glass, and instead, has a variety of moves to get attention. It will stand on the mat by the glass door, and hop up, with wings extended. It will also fly up against the glass, or cling to the screen door with its feet, looking in. (Or looking at its reflection?) I have been concerned that it would get hurt by bumping against the glass too hard, so I have put patio chairs in front of the glass, and even a kid’s big wheel, which seems to have reduced the noise on the glass.
Once I go outside, it flies up to nearby birch trees, and eventually flies away, often with other birds. I thought a few weeks ago, that it might have become separated from its flock, but that does not appear to be the case. It is a mystery to me why the Towhee continues to call, but, I confess, I have become intrigued by its visits!
