Hermit Thrush

Catharus guttatus

Description:

An unassuming bird with a lovely, melancholy song, the Hermit Thrush lurks in the understories of far northern forests in summer and is a frequent winter companion across much of the country. It forages on the forest floor by rummaging through leaf litter or seizing insects with its bill. The Hermit Thrush has a rich brown upper body and smudged spots on the breast, with a reddish tail that sets it apart from similar species in its genus

Notes:

After nearly a week of rain, this thrush seemed to be enjoying the early morning sunshine.
