Winter Storm Brings Out Towhee and Red-winged Blackbird

One of the benefits of today's winter storm is that birds that normally eat off the ground and in the bush need to come to the feeders. Yesterday, I mentioned the rare winter sighting of the red-winged blackbird on the group and at the window feeder. Well, here he is in the first photo. The gray overcast of the storm makes using the telephoto lens very difficult - so sorry for the poor quality.
Another fairly rare visitor to the Habitat is the eastern towhee. The second photo is proof of the difficulty of shooting photos of dark birds with a bright white background.
