Ya, that is a very finchy beak. If its the size of a robin, that is rather large (thanks for the tip, I wouldn't have guessed it was that size.)

My only guess is that this might be a female of whatever it is (its a bit drab, but that could be seasonal.)

I don't know what it is, though. I'm interested in finding out.

Looks like a California Towhee. Here is one under my feeder. They spend a lot of time on or near the ground.

Nice shooting, and I absolutely love that background. I would have tried to sharpen the bird a touch more but that's subjective. Good pose and spectacular background.

dcl2q. Most definately a Towhee, looked it up in my bird book. This has been driving me nuts for a couple of months and I thought I'd gone through the book page by page.:roll:

Thanks very much, Suzan
