Hermit Thrush beauty
A few days ago we had a Hermit Thrush in our yard, eating pokeberries. This lesser-known relative of the American Robin has a beautiful song and breeds across much of Canada, the West and upper eastern parts of the U.S. It winters in the lower third of the U.S. and beyond. Watch for this thrush now, during its migration, and look for it in southern areas in winter.
