- It is sometimes mistaken for an American Robin (until you see the breast color) but it is smaller and the colors are bolder.
- Towhees eat seeds, fruits, insects, spiders, millipedes, centipedes, snails, flower buds and parts of plants in farm land such as wheat

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
