The California towhee’s coloring is dull brown overall with light rust undertail coverts and buff or rust colored streaks at the throat. This bird’s natural habitat is brush or chaparral, but it adapts well to urban parks and gardens. However, its skulking habits combined with its nondescript appearance mean that it is not one of the better known garden birds even though it is regularly drawn to feeding stations.
