Hi All,

I still have dark brown Towhees around my place (TCP), and every color hue to the full adult. This is the latest, and fullest year of Towhees in my memory.

Wow! That does seem really late for towhee fledglings to be begging!

Birds of Oregon: A General Reference (Marshall, Hunter, and Contreras, 2003, OSU Press) lists 30 Jul as a late date for nests with young, and 8 Aug as a late date for fledglings. I recall Dave Budeau (former manager at E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area) once found a nest while mowing around the skeet range, which might have stretched that envelope by a week or so.

Vesper Sparrows and Chipping Sparrows both seemed to have more nests later into the season than in other recent years, and it seems like there also a lot of still-spotty juvenile Western Bluebirds around for this stage of September.

Hi All-

We have a new batch of young Spotted Towhees begging from their parents around the yard and being fed!  Isn't it getting a bit late for this?  Also, Song Sparrows have been singing here at home and other places for the last week or so, so nice to hear.
