Female Eastern Towhee and female Spotted Towhee

Both Eastern and Spotted Towhees are found in North-central Texas. Females of the species can be safely identified in the field even without seeing any spotting on the scapulars.

Female Eastern Towhees show a slightly rufous tone to the head and neck color. Spotted Towhees are more of a light charcoal color as shown here. The males of both species have a blackish head color and are not described here.
