I spent some time on the back deck this morning, coffee, my ears and some
binoculars, just incase. Our resident Thrasher was making quite a racket, along
with several other wintering birds in the easement. After several minutes, I
heard what I at first thought was a distant Hermit Thrush. It came in much
closer and sang some more. Still no sighting, but now it was close enough to
hear that it was in fact a Wood Thrush. I was patient, and eventually got some
great looks at it. By all accounts, that I could find, this is an early
sighting. Great FOS migrant for an impromptu morning.
When the weather cleared up this afternoon, I was able to locate the bird
again, although it was silent this time.
Bring on spring migration!
