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). A beauty of a bird although somewhat elusive (no sighting today as far as I know). 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.
