I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging

Well, this is a thrush. It could be a Swainson's thrush, or it could be a hermit thrush. Hermit thrushes have reddish tails but I only saw the bird from the front, so I'm just not sure.

Which has been happening a lot the past few weeks. Maybe it's just that I've learned all the common birds, so that I've forgotten how hard I used to find identifying anything less obvious than a cardinal or a robin. There was a time when I would have been thrilled just knowing that this was a thrush, without worrying too much about which particular thrush it might be. And it is awfully cute, whatever it's called.
