Swainson’s Thrush (Catharus ustulatus)- 2 photos

I starting gathering next Winter’s firewood yesterday. Fortunately I have quite a few dead standing trees so I won’t have to cut any live trees (and rarely do). While bucking up one tree this thrush was very interested. At first I was worried that I had disturbed it’s nest but then I saw that it was picking through the moss and sawdust looking for food. It stayed all day and wasn’t disturbed by me or the chainsaw.

April Showers…

bring May flowers. Unfortunately we are having highly unusual snow showers which is a bit of a shocker for the Spring flowers. Hopefully warmer weather is coming !
