Hermit Thrush visitor
Scenes in The
thrushes are usually shy, so I was surprised when this Hermit Thrush
showed up in the yard Friday afternoon. Actually, I had forgotten
that we had a resident winter thrush, so I
was a bit concerned that the bird might have missed the boat on fall
migration. I looked up possible thrush foods, discovering that
insects are preferred but fruits are common in fall and winter, then
scattered raisins around the yard in case the thrush was starving.
Our chicken waterer keeps our domesticated flock happy and healthy as they enjoy a similar life, remembering to leave us an egg now and then in thanks.
