I just saw one in my backyard at a feeder in Knoxville, TN
I saw one of the males in my backyard in Ooltewah, TN today.
I was dropping of/ picking up some books from the Huntington library and i saw one of these birds digging for some worms. It was pretty cool.
Davy. You are correct. The female is more brown than black.
I've seen one everyday for the last week in back yard. Bellevue Tennessee.
I just seen one of these birds in my back yard in Springville, Tn. but I believe she is a female because she is brown where the male is black am I wrong?
I see a Towhee frequently feeding in my backyard. He is quite a singer when perched in the dogwood.

Hi, this is my first time ever to see one of these beautiful birds,and in my back yard. I live in west tn. Dan
I have a pair in my yard I live in east Tenn.They are beautiful !!!!!
Yes, thank you for this great site. I am new to East TN and enjoying watching all the different birds in the area. I saw this bird once, but it didn't stay long to get a good look. It cam back yesterday and I was able to video him and now know what type of bird it is.
Thank you for such a wonderful site for easily identifying birds in our area! (Knoxville) Like many others have posted, it was our first time noticing this beautiful bird on our back deck....and now we know what it is! :)
Hello. I saw this bird for the 1st time today feeding with all my other favorites here in my back yard in Oak Ridge Tennessee. I really appreciate being able to identify it using your site. It is a ver beautiful and striking bird.
we have lived in Clarksville for over 8 yrs now and this is the first time this type of bird has been at our feeder. Beautiful and didn't know what it was, your website is great for helping!
We have these, robins, and cardinals all the time in our front yard feeding from our feeder. Clarksville.
I live in hendersonville and I just saw one for the first time
I just saw a few of these in Clarksville, TN. I had never seen one before at my feeders, so I had to look it up via my favorite Tennessee bird webpage. This page is great.
My name is Noah. I am at my grandmothers house in Hixson. The bird is pecking at the window. I did not know what kind of bird it is and I had to look it up online.
I live in Chattanooga and we have seen on all week. It has been sitting in our window and pecking at the glass all week. I had to look it up,
Just saw one in East TN...had to look it up. At first thought it was a Baltimore Oriele...a wonderful addition to our Cardinals, Titmouse, Sparrows, and Robins...Yeah!
I have a flock of them that cme to my Holly trees every Feb. and eat all the berries.
I just heard one in my garden in Crieve Hall -
I just saw one in the back garden in Belle Meade - very distinctive call. Gorgeous - wish it would come to my back garden in Crieve Hall.
I have one at our window that keeps trying to fly in and is also enjoying teasing our cat!
I've had a pair at my feeder this week.
Visiting my friend from New York in Lewisburg, Tennessee. She has two pairs at her feeder
I live in Chattanooga and have had this bird all week. We had a bad winter storm and very cold temps all week.
Rufous-sided Towhee I have had one of these at my feeder for over a week. I had to look it up, I don't think they are native to this area (Crossville, TN, middle TN), probably migrating through. I have only seen a male so far been looking for a female. Thanks for the pictures.
