Enjoy birding within the early successional habitats of the Partnership Boundary. A common site to see and hear are Eastern towhees. Grouped in the “songbird” category, they are infamous for their song “Drink your teeeaaaaa”. They can be heard and seen in spring through early fall during their arrival and departure migration, and nesting periods.
