Here down in GA, in the backyard, we found this Hermit Thrush, quietly sitting in the bushes. The head, back and wings are brown but the tail is reddish, a great clue to Hermit Thrush.
Here's a side view and you can see the moderate spotting on the breast and the thin whitish eye-ring. It sat quietly and didn't seem to mind me. This is how I think of thrushes, lurking in shady, leafy nooks. It's wintering down here. Could it be the same Hermit Thrush that breeds at our NH home?
We will be very busy for the next week and may not be able to blog much, but we'll be back soon.
