Towhee Eastern Female 3

This was hopping along the ground in the North American Flight Cage at the Columbus Zoo.

Towhee comes to mind, but really - I have NO idea.  Sure is a cutie.

I did some looking, maybe a female Eastern or Spotted Towhee.  Here's a link to a photo:

I love towhees.  They really do say "drink your tea" and "tweet".  Here is the Cornell Ornithology page.  Click on sound and you'll hear it.  We hear this all summer.  They haven't arrived yet.

We have them here,  but I can't recall ever seeing one - though I'm pretty sure I've heard them. :)
