Varied Thrush - Meredith Sampson

Meredith Sampson, who was there at Jim’s when I saw the thrush on Wednesday, sent me this very nice capture of the bird (particularly given the distance and the pane of glass in the way).

My hope is that it is still in the area and that as cooler temps set in it’ll become more reliant on Jim’s feeder – time will tell I guess.
