I See Spots, Do You See Spots..

Wood Thrush

Look at the spots on this Wood Thrush! Such a pretty breasted bird. I’ve always had a tough time telling the Thrushes apart, but this Wood Thrush was easy to spot.  Reddish-brown above, brightest on the crown and nape. Large dark spots on whitish throat, breast and sides. It was fun watching him share the birdbath with his cousin the Swainsons Thrush of which I’ve had many this fall in the yard. All birdies welcome at our backyard!

    Thanks Sheila! My neighbor called it her “scary” bird as it appeared at her kitchen window and scared her. I hope to see more of him/her before he/she leaves the yard.
