I'm also thankful that when I went out into the enclosed patio this morning, to have a look around, I noticed some little brown birds in the Virginia Creeper. For some reason, I wasn't even thinking about the Hermit Thrush I saw last year...but when one bird settled long enough to get binoculars on it, I saw the spotty throat and white-circled eye.
Last year I got some (bad) shots of one, and I got this shot of it's back (below) just now; I'll try for better photos. I'll post it here, if I manage to get one. I'm still suffering from some sort of viral-thang that has me sneezing almost non-stop and my eyes weeping so much I can hardly look at the bright snow out there.
At least while very, very shy
...it does keep coming back to the berries.
I'll get a decent shot at it yet!
