California Towhee

Melozone crissalis


I think that it's a California Towhee? I'm not sure though and I brightened the image to see it better because originally found this bird at dusk. It's big, fat, and brown in color, and the tail is fairly long.


California chaparral.

Shape looks good for a towhee, hard to be positive from the photo though!
