Question What is it? Seen this morning in Virginia

I did a quick search but apparently I'm not good at identifying birds

Saw this guy this morning, he stayed on ground for as long as I watched. Didn't seem overly skittish. About the size of a catbird. Richmond VA area.

I think it's a juvenile Eastern Towhee.

Thank you. I saw Eastern towhee in list of birds but I've never seen adults here so I didn't think to look up that juvenile. Guess he ran away from home lol
