Looking out the window the other day, I spotted this bird.
A new one for me.
It's a Wood Thrush.*
Wood Thrushes are forest-interior birds and are unlikely to come to feeders.
Although it summers in this area,
it should have been on it's way down south.
I hope this was a quick stop over,
and this little guy is on his way to Central America!
*Edit: Tex thinks it's a Fox Sparrow, she knows her birds, so maybe I have misidentified it. If so, it's a still a new one for me, and it won't freeze to death as a Thrush is likely to in this climate.
The muscle spasticity and pain that have wreaked havoc with my body over the past few weeks, has been tamed to a level of tolerance, which is allowing me to return to some of my normal activities...one of them being, taking pics of my backyard visitors.
I am hoping to post here at least once a week, and resume visiting and commenting, on all my friends blogs. It feels good to be back!
This could be my last post for a while, until BLOGGER gets the on again, off again "word verification" issue solved. With vision problems due to Multiple Sclerosis, I can't decipher the CAPTCHA codes. I do visit other blogs, but it's almost impossible for me to leave a comment a lot of the time.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ I do not use word verification on my blog, BUT for some reason it has been showing up on my comment area several times today. I have turned it off repeatedly ...looks like a Blogger glitch. Is anyone else having this problem?
