Indeed, a recently fledged juvenile towhee. They don't spend a lot of time
in this plumage, so this is actually something I don't see very often even
though they are common across TN.

Well, I should know this but I don’t. This bird has an oddly placed white
spot on tail. I’m guessing it’s a juvenile of some sort.
