New Mexico Nature, Urban and Rural
Photographs taken in Albuquerque, New Mexico or in the mountains and desert nearby
This canyon towhee (Melozone fusca) only looks like it needs to lose a lot of weight. A breeze was ruffling its down when I snapped the picture. I took the picture at a friend's house in the East Mountain area (part of Albuquerque's outer suburbs) on September 6, 2021.
