A Mystery Solved ... Identified
Saturday, October 13, 2018
I've been hearing this bird calling from the yard for days and could not get a good look at it.
Yesterday, it was too high up in the tree with poor lighting.
This morning, it evaded my eye for quite some time.
Finally, a glimpse, as it dropped from the tree to the ground beneath the bird bath. A thrush?!
Not what I was expecting.
Given I know what commonly visits our area, I searched Cornell Lab's Sound Library.
Yes. What I expected, once I realized that I was dealing with a thrush.
Let me introduce you to our most recent visitor … the Hermit Thrush.
