Took this photo today, but I'm not certain whether it's Spotted Towhee or not....

Thanks for the link. I did see that prior to posting, but due to the angle and the lighting of the subject, I concluded that it's about 80% that my guess is correct.

No. . It's a Dark-eyed Junco, Junco hyemalis.

This appears to be the Oregon variety (or subspecies or whatever they consider it), and appears to be an adult female.

This (below) is a Spotted Towhee.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Thank you for the ID correction! A part of my confusion came about because there were dozens of spotted towhees flying about at that spot.
