spotted_towhee_wierdness_20210322_165-Edit

There are two spotted towhees that seem to have fallen in love with their own reflection on our cars. Sort of like Narcissus (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissus_%28mythology%29). My guess is it's near nesting season and they think the reflection is either a potential mate or rival. They do this behavior all day.

Taken in our Prescott driveway.
