Photo share: Varied Thrush

Rare winter resident in Michigan from October to April. Cornell’s Lab of Ornithology website AllAboutBirds.org writes that the “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 mid-western states.”

Thank you for sharing your photos! If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com and I'll put it on the Friday Photo posts.
