What are they looking at? Searching for baby limes on a tree that only produces 2 limes each year? Nope.
That is the mom, a California Towhee. Not so cute, in fact quite boring. But she is fierce. She has the most annoyingly loud 'teek' (official sound according to Sibley) when we get too close to the nest. So, we're trying to keep our distance, but we so badly want to peek into the nest several times each day.
