Hermit Thrush

Long ago I gave up on growing grass in the highly shaded back yard and keep it natural.  No grass to cut but leaf mulching is required.  I usually wait until closer to spring when the sight of a copperhead sends me running for the mower but with the warmer winter, went ahead and mulched early.

A good thing that has resulted from an early mulching is there always seem to be birds out scratching finding something to eat.  Today it has been a fiesta for the Robins, Towhees and sparrows.  As I would pass the window I noticed a bird that looked different from the usual visitors.

Out with the camera to get a shot.  Very glad to see the Hermit Thrush in the yard and it has spent the majority of the day here.
