Further to my post from yesterday, the bird I saw had a white belly with orange sides. I had it reversed so upon reading the comments, I have , or rather you fine people have come to the conclusion that this bird was an Eastern Towhee. I don't know why it is not in my book of birds. Time to update my library I think. I would like everyone that contributed to my dilemma and am very happy to have joined this web site. I have a large pond on my property that attracts a large variety of birds. A few years ago, I had a Brant show up and by the end of the summer, I was feeding her by hand. I called her Miss Waddles. She was alone without a partner and she would come every year for about ten years and then she was gone. She is the only Brant I have ever seen as they usually do not migrate this far south. Thank you for your time and look forward to this amazing site. Happy birding!
