|The eye has it: Spotted Towhee
We encountered a small family on the trail coming back--man, woman, and two kids--and Frio barked at them several times. I have yet to convince him not to bark at strangers. Willow was very well behaved; in fact she was great during the entire hike.
When we returned to the cabin I got to work mowing grass and weed in the yard and along our road and driveway. Then Dr. K helped while I removed a fallen tree that had blocked our pathway into the forest near our property. Did a lot of work today, and I still have a little yard work to do tomorrow.
