Thursday Birdblogging

Varied Thrush

From San Antonio's Audubon Society;

I have seen that this bird is decreasing in number.

This Varied Thrush male was discovered by Mike Creese at Avenue A in Brackenridge Park on November 8, 2004. Martin Reid graciously gave permission to use this photo and has a couple more here (from Ruth - site had expired). Great bird for our area and many have already flocked to see it.

About Varied Thrush;

A large, robin-like thrush of the Pacific Northwest, the Varied Thrush is a characteristic bird of the mature, dark coniferous forests. Wandering individuals turn up regularly far from home, wintering around feeders in the midwestern states.
