Towhees: the awkward, drab and essential brown bird.

There is a bird called the California towhee that is found in almost every yard. It is the most mundane of backyard residents: plain and brown, a chunky, clumsy member of the sparrow family that hops about on the edges of gardens and under bird feeders. Towhees are not flashy, exciting, obviously beautiful, graceful, or melodious. This makes them an ideal starting point if you are just beginning your exploration of backyard birds, one that won’t dazzle and distract you with bright colors and a dulcet voice, as if that was what constituted the worth of a creature.
