A Hermit Thrush popped in for a quick visit this afternoon.
These birds are just a tad smaller than Cardinals, and spend their winters here in the south.
It is not often that I see one feasting at my feeders, but the weather here has been below freezing and I think he (or she, I can’t really tell) decided to take advantage of a ready made lunch.
He squawked to scare off a Warbler and then perched to partake of some Bark Butter that was spread on the backside of the branch.
This bird is not bold or stunning, but I still think he is beautiful. I am glad he showed up when I had my camera handy.
