Aberts Towhee: Have you seen this bird?

Abert’s Towhee

The Abert’s Towhee (Pipilo aberti) is a bird of the family Emberizidae, native to a small range in southwestern North America. The name of this bird commemorates the American ornithologist James William Abert (1820-1897).

Abert’s Towhees are recognized by their relatively long tails, dark faces, and overall brown plumage. They are related to sparrows and juncos but are more similar to thrashers in appearance.

Identification Tips:
• Length: 7.75 inches
• Conical bill
• Dark eye
• Black area around base of bill
• Brown upperparts
• Buffy underparts
• Rusty undertail coverts
• Long tail
• Juvenile (Spring to Fall) lightly spotted below

Similar species:
Abert’s Towhee is similar to California and Canyon Towhees but has a black area around the base of the bill and is buffier overall.

This bird is common in brushy riparian habitats in the Lower Sonoran desert zone but may require some effort to see as it prefers to stay well-hidden under bushes.

These birds are often seen foraging among dense brush for seeds. Like other towhees, they scratch at the ground in a manner similar to quail, and will sometimes dig up and eat grubs.
